Heat lines are the lines created in the excited air just above the highway in summer. Michael Anania's new collection of poems deals with the energies provoked by image, memory, history, and myth. Anania's verse idiom has been widely praised for its precision, rich language and lyric musicality. The Midwestern landscape from his earlier work reappears here, fused in one poem with a Miles Davis tune. Chicago is here as well, concrete, busy and filled with blues and jazz. There is also a vivid sequence set in Calabria, which engages the southern Italian present and its mythic past.
