About the Book

Michael Cunningham’s novel The Hours inspired these found poems. Half are pantoums that capture the dramatic arc of his four main characters in several poems each. The title poem “toward the river,” for example, is drawn from Cunningham’s fictional depiction of Virginia Woolf’s suicide. The remaining poems are erasures that playfully depart from the novel (“shudder at the awful taste of water on the tenth sun”).
