A magnificent book of hope and resolve written out of profound losses, by award-winning poet Mark Wunderlich.
“God of Nothingness is a folkloric investigation into death and its resounding implications on our humanity and significance.”—The Arkansas International
“Erotic, folkloric, elegiac, philosophic, aesthetic, lyric, queer and rural and utterly haunted (but without the usual messiness of haunting), Wunderlich transcends downward and takes us with him . . . I am in love with The God of Nothingness, which is permeated, it turns out, with a majestic somethingness.”—Diane Seuss
“Mark Wunderlich’s poems are alarmingly wise, lyrically charged, and built out of an almost otherworldly clarity . . . Wunderlich makes an argument not for beauty but for a clear-eyed resilience. God of Nothingness is a book that is as devastating as it is life-affirming, a weapon that both wounds and saves.”—Ada Limón
“The superb fourth collection from Wunderlich disarms with its directness, humor, and pathos.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
