Review of book: WITH THE PEOPLE FROM THE BRIDGE

With the People from the Bridge is the second book in Greek poet Dimitris Lyacos’ Poena Damni trilogy (translated by Shorsha Sullivan and published by Shoestring Press). You can read my review of the first book in the trilogy, Z213: Exit, here. With the People from the Bridge is not a sequel in the traditional sense—there is no narrative continuity, no shared characters, no links, no tenuous connections between the events. It is, instead, a restaging/extension of the themes and aesthetic of the first book.
