Overview

In The Alphabet of the Traveler, Corrado Paina has crafted an alphabetical meditation on the motives and concerns of an anonymous traveler who seeks to escape the bonds of time and determination. It is a book for anyone who has ever gone to a foreign country and experienced the delicious freedom of anonymity. Through prose poems that try to carry as little baggage as possible, Paina's traveler reluctantly finds himself transporting the inevitable souvenirs of the past that collect on every journey, even as he marvels at their ability to mark the way over borders and across time.
