Say Goodnight
Timothy Liu

In his third collection of poems, Liu has extended his already considerable range in meticulous poems that are sometimes shocking, sometimes consoling, but consistently vivid in imagery and consequence. From the KKK to the third Century Chinese poet Lu Chi to the Hirschorn Museum, Liu greets savagery and beauty alike with tender intelligence and a wise eye for revealing detail.

For Say Goodnight, Timothy Liu

"This work, like Whitman's, has a chastened radical innocence."—Library Journal

"Say Goodnight takes us from youthful quietude to ironic eros, while never quite lapsing into jaded nonchalance."—Publishers Weekly

"It's refreshing to read the work of someone who knows his limits, and knows when and where to surpass them."—The Stranger

"Liu greets savagery and beauty alike with tender intelligence, a rhythmic ear, and a wise eye for revealing detail. In his third collection of poems, he extends his already considerable range in meticulous poems that are sometimes shocking, sometimes consoling, often erotic, but consistently vivid in imagery and consequence."—American Poet

"Eroticism... runs underneath these verses like a dropped power-line."—Lambda Book Report
