Finding a way in …

… The Little Books of Julia Nemirovskaya - Asymptote. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I would like to talk about my journey into a short lyric by Julia Nemirovskaya, a Russian poet who was born in Moscow in 1962 and now teaches at the University of Oregon. I first read Nemirovskaya’s poems five years ago and was immediately charmed by her voice. It is a humble voice, somewhat childlike—a perfect vehicle for her penetrating, childlike imagination.
