Fearless hybridization... Jordan creates spaces where physics and poetry, comic books and jazz, memory and loss, come together. -- American Prospect

This ambitious collection explores the intersection of the infinite world of physics with the perplexities of the human condition. Employing both narrative and cinematic structure, Jordan re-creates the lives of Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, and comic book superheroes -- the Green Lantern, the Atom -- and also reveals himself in poems of recollection and loss.
