Some brief overview of book

A profound literary debut that recounts a childs singular story Since I made you, you may imagine I set myself on fire or better, say you lit the funeral pyre from ten thousand days away. A young woman in Paris encounters an uncanny presence on a tour of a small museum. A study by Rodin of the dancer Little Hanakotitled Head of Sorrowtriggers in the young woman recognition of her mother, a mother erased from her life since childhood.

Thus begins Eleanor Chais Standing Water, one of the most remarkable first books of poetry in recent years. It is a journey into the past as well as the presentinto the narrative hidden from the poet since birth, as well as the strategies that she has adopted to survive. It is a journey about how we learn to cope with, to perceive and describe, the world.

It is a story about savage privilege and deprivation. Haunting the whole is the figure of the real Little HanakoRodins model, a Japanese artist displaced in Europe, the medium through which other artists dream and discover the world.
