If This World Falls Apart


Winner of the Blue Lynx Prize for 2010

At last, here is a beautiful new book from Lou Lipsitz's, one of the great, clear voices of the Vietnam War era. The early work was much admired for its crystalline imagery, concision, and tonal freshness; the new poems combine all of this with deep reflection upon the ways in which we are known and unknown to ourselves.

About the Author

Lou Lipsitz is the author of Seeking the Hook, Cold Water, and Reflections on Samson.


"A grave serenity attends the poems in Lou Lipsitz's If This World Falls Apart. Like an archeologist of the heart, Lipsitz examines those obdurate fragments the past tosses 'into the shattered / treasure house of another day,' and reassembles them with a clear—eyed, buoyant affection. This book is a gift."—Gary Young, Gary Young
