Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989705153, Paperback)

Poetry. "Andrew Kaufman's THE COMPLETE CINNAMON BAY SONNETS bear powerful witness to 'the last loneliness' of the lost, the forsaken, the outcast, the humiliated, the downtrodden. Divided between the almost paradisiacal Virgin Islands and a New York City Central Booking cell, the poet offers his nightmare flashbacks/angelic visions. 'Swimming in wonder,' deafened by 'the screaming sirens of pure pain,' he evokes 'the intifada of the heart.' 'Yo! Professor,' his cellmates implore him, 'We're all sad. Tell us a poem.' Echoing the Psalmist's 'How can I sing the Lord's song in a strange land?' with brave urgency he responds: 'I am here—and writing. Please listen.'"—L.S. Asekoff
