"Solarium is a completely original gem of a book."-Henri Cole, from the foreword

Bowl of the lake. Bowl of the sky.
Bowl of the lake with the sky in it.

You looked at you in the water.

The blizzard is cold.
And the boy in the blizzard is blue.

Jordan Zandi grew up in the rural Midwest, and in 2011 graduated with an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he was the recipient of a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship to Bolivia. His poetry has appeared in the New Republic and Little Star.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Best Poetry of 2016, The New York Times "Zandi's mellow, sometimes deliberately goofy lines ("As loud as cats and happiness!") can almost fool you into missing the agile intellect that makes this one of the year's strongest first books." The New York Times "A first book made eventful by the weirdness and clarity of Zandi's mind. Poetry is like solitaire: we go to it to pass the time. Zandi reminds us that passing the time is a very serious activity. His balletic inner life belies the gravity at its core." The New Yorker "Zandi's debut collection radiates a fragile warmth in what proves to be an aching and uncommonly ingenious exploration of youth and memory." Publishers Weekly
