    I <i>have</i> read <i>A Child Is not a Knife</i>, only because I follow Lesser&#39;s work. Her own poetry is wonderful–underrated, I think–and her translations are revelatory. You must know her; personally, or as a member of the Great Circle of translators. In any case, she is remarkable, and Sonnevi (Lesser&#39;s Sonnevi, at least) is a damn genius.<br /><br />*<br /><br />I hope you do track

    The sample got me hooked. Think I&#39;d like to get this one. Thanks, Joe.

    It&#39;s so great that the book is finally out; it took Rika YEARS to find a publisher for it! I have it but have not read it yet.<br /><br />Have you read &quot;A Child is not a Knife&quot;, Rika&#39;s previous volume of Sonnevi?
