Usually we open a dictionary looking for an answer. Svetlana Lilova's Metaphysical Dictionary is different: you're more likely to come away with a question. It's a collection of very short poems, framed as term and definition, alphabetically sorted. The individual entries may fascinate or frustrate, amuse or confuse. But as you read through the entirety, or skip from page to page, the terms echo and reverberate, and sometimes fold together into transient origami.
An enigmatic, whimsical, piercing and utterly unique book, illustrated by Graham Falk, whose drawings and cartoons reflect the tonal variety of Lilova's poems.
