Dwibedy has a unique and marvellous way of sculpting phrases that lie just beyond what we've already thought - and we feel our imaginations grow in response. His is a vision plugged directly into the heart but also into the concrete world underscoring the innate loving capacity of all things from trees to twilight. This is a book driven by the immensity of possibility and through it Dwibedy's work makes new and amazing things possible. - Cole Swensen
