Book Launch: For the Love of Endings by Ben Purkert — in conversation w/ Meghan O’Rourke

How does it feel to lose your planet, your lover, yourself? Purkert’s debut collection, For the Love of Endings, tests what connects us to this earth and to each other. Light-footed and dark-humored, his brilliantly crafted poems examine “the gap / between the world & how / people paint it: dark, distant, there / for the taking.” He makes us look at our disintegrating world head on and see what we’ve done to it, and what it has done to us.
