Praise for The Bicycle Year:
What I love about Caroline Cabrera’s “The Bicycle Year” is how it is suffused with duration, how it remembers itself as a way of creating itself, how invested the poetry is in creating an archaeology of time, a predictive fossil record which shows how necessary it is for any of us to reflect on our human narrative as a way of giving it a shape for the future that’s coming for us whether we like it or not.
In that way, it operates in a way that I think is important. It thinks instead of just always reacting. It reflects before it deploys its explosive payload so that whatever vibrant glamour shines through will actually light the night instead of just scorching out any watching eyes.
