Deaf Republic

“Let them borrow the light from the blind. / Let them kiss your forehead, approached from every angle. / What is silence? Something of the sky in us.” Joseph Fasano reads an excerpt from Ilya Kaminsky’s new collection, Deaf Republic (Graywolf Press, 2019), for the American Poem video series. An interview with Kaminsky by Garth Greenwell appears in the March/April issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
