Kaminsky’s Dancing in Odessa

Dancing in Odessa

Ilya Kaminsky

Another beautiful collection from the talented Illya Kaminsky, this one more focused on the beauty in the ordinary. I like this collection fine, but Kaminsky’s slightly later work, Deaf Republic, which I read last year is a work of true brilliance and really worth reading. If you’re new to Kaminsky (or really even new to contemporary poetry) start there.

Recommended for the enthusiast.
