In poems that travel from the horrific flight of a World War II pilot to the World Trade Center attack, from the death of JFK Jr. to the poet's own bastard birth, Ai conjures purity as a distant memory and the knowledge of evil as an "infinite dark night." "An undoubtedly powerful personae."-Publishers Weekly "Ai's cleansing soliloquies give voice to pain both personal and communal.... Dread] presents her most masterfully unnerving works to date."-Booklist "Dread has the characteristic moral strength that makes Ai a necessary poet."-The New York Times Book Review

"Ai's cleansing soliloquies give voice to pain both personal and communal.... ["Dread] presents her most masterfully unnerving works to date."
