Poetry. Translated into the Italian by Maria Enrico. Facing page English. Grace Cavalieri's new book of poetry is winner of the Bordighera Poetry Prize sponsored by the Sonia Raiziss-Giop Charitable Foundation. WATER ON THE SUN shows an interesting meeting point of American montage culture and Italian cadence-in-lyric. "Cavalieri has an imaginative, wise, and contemplative voice, with a sense of surprise that awakens our thinking. One wants to dwell over her poems which cover a large range of themes from a surreal and dreamlike existence to family love and world crisis. This is original poetry with a quirky and richly fanciful element, yet always accessible to the heart and mind, even as it sometimes leaves us wondering at the turns taken" -Daniela Gioseffi.
