Beyond Elsewhere

Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac | Translated by Hélène Cardona | White Pine Press | May 10, 2016

Beyond Elsewhere is a hauntingly beautiful long prose poem, a dance that at once touches on the universal and uniquely personal. With his debut collection, Gabriel Arnou- Laujeac establishes himself as one of French poetry’s most innovative new voices. His writing is lyrical, masterful, exquisite, an opening into the elusive, affirming the absolute necessity of listening to the world. Beyond Elsewhere is a symphonic poem with boundless language, where past and present meet.

Winner of a Hemingway Grant in 2015.
