The latest collection of poetry from Pulitzer Prize winner Jorie Graham

"A fascinating mosaic that explores what it means to live and die at a time when technology is redefining our existence......moving... an] important book." (The Washington Post)

In her first new collection in five years--her most exhilarating, personal, and formally inventive to date--Jorie Graham explores the limits of the human and the uneasy seductions of the post-human. Conjuring an array of voices and perspectives--from bots to the holy shroud, to the ocean floor, to a medium transmitting from beyond the grave--these poems give urgent form to the ever-increasing pace of transformation of our planet and ourselves. As it navigates cyber life; 3D printed "life"; life after death; and biologically, chemically, and electronically modified life, Fast lights up the border of our new condition as individuals and as a species on the brink.
