From the publisher (Andy Hoffmann of Elik Press):
The poems that make up Alex Caldiero’s Sonosuono speak to each other as brothers and sisters around a kitchen table in a passionate discussion of origins, of the importance of place. Much like the William Carlos Williams of Paterson, or the Anne Waldman of Iovis, Caldiero combs through family history in a lyric that troubles the waters of nostalgia, even as he asks the reader to meditate on the meaning and loss of home. As always, for Caldiero, the rhythm of language is the heart of the work, the beat of the world revealed. Sonosuono is as enormous as it is tight, every word an apostle of the poet’s creed.
