Praise for Alex Dimitorv

 

"Dimitrov is that rarest of creatures, a true poet and a truly contemporary poet. Thank god he’s here.” --Michael Cunningham

 

“Alex Dimitrov's passionate, headlong poems seem to want to carve beneath the surface of gestures, beneath the skin, to the warm and dangerous blood beneath.” --Mark Doty

 

"Dimitrov is a vital new energy in American poetry." Los Angeles Review of Books

 

About Together and By Ourselves

 

Together and by Ourselves, Alex Dimitrov's second book of poems, takes on broad existential questions and the reality of our current moment: being seemingly connected to one another, yet emotionally alone. Through a collage aesthetic and a multiplicity of voices, these poems take us from coast to coast, New York to LA, and toward uneasy questions about intimacy, love, death, and the human spirit. Dimitrov critiques America's long-lasting obsessions with money, celebrity, and escapism whether in our personal, professional, or family lives. What defines a life? Is love ever enough? Who are we when together and who are we by ourselves? These questions echo throughout the poems, which resist easy answers. The voice is both heartfelt and skeptical, bruised yet playful, and always deeply introspective.
