In the fall of 2005, poets Alison Calder and Jeanette Lynes began a conversation about urban nature, how the city fits into the landscape, and how people fit into the city. Ghost Works records that conversation in a series of letters and poems, producing a linguistic landscape as textured and layered as the city itself. In its recurring motifs of shadow and trace, Ghost Works reminds readers that movement is always simultaneously progress and retreat,loss and plenitude.
