Description: In The Creation of the Night Sky, Christopher, whose work Harold Bloom calls "an authentic addition to American poetry, " displays both mastery of language and astonishing range. In verses elegiac and surreal we are taken from the lush islands of Hawaii to the streets of Greenwich Village after midnight; from a sparsely attended Las Vegas funeral to a children's tea party.

Night Journal, the centerpiece of The Creation of the Night Sky, is a long poem written as separate entries but interconnected by the poet to tell a story that takes place in a single night. Through wonderfully crafted passages and built on a psychic triangle created by the interaction of three characters, Christopher brings to light a world of duality and challenges us to confront fundamental questions of life and death.

Whether he is describing items lost and found or a woman drowning in a stormy sea, Christopher's poetry is filled with detailed observations and moments of spiritual illumination that will make him not only one of today's most important young poets but an icon for years to come.
