“You and Three Others Are Approaching a Lake”

The James Laughlin Award is given by the Academy of American Poets to recognize and support a rather unusual (and unique) achievement – a poet’s second book of poetry. For 2011, the Laughlin Award was given to Anna Moschovakis for You and Three Others Are Approaching a Lake.

I’ve never read a book of poetry quite like it.

The title suggests a story or a riddle, implying that something is going to happen or unfold, or a challenge or competition is going to begin. Or perhaps a choice is going to be offered. All of these things, or something like them, does indeed happen, as Moschovakis explores technology and technological culture.
