"Alphabetic dismantling, syntactic play, essaying words backwards and 4words (as she might say), Christakos manifests forensic clarity and telegraphic fortitude in this unsettling work."--Rachel Blau DuPlessis

Margaret Christakos's eighth collection, "Multitudes," is a moving, witty foray into a modern frontier of public spaces, poetic forms, private longings, and virtual relocations. Pairing Walt Whitman with social media, her trademark linguistic sonar casts a discouraged eye on a world where citizens turn from ethical social activism to snitch on their Facebook friends after an urban hockey riot.
