Ten Thousand Miles Between Us

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” For its part, the book, Ten Thousand Miles Between Us, is a collection of poems about the love affair with movement. From the wide open Canadian prairies to the claustrophobic markets of Indonesia, Rocco de Giacomo’s poems explore the relationship between the delight of the exotic and the frightening sense of the other that exists in the heart of the modern-day traveller.

Reviews of this Book

“De Giacomo distils the existential horror and beauty (often at the same time) buried within the most seemingly mundane events. He does this with such effortlessness that I suspect he slips quite by accident beneath the surface of things, modestly and generously revealing to us what he has found there. … These poems are authentic, surprising and refreshingly relevant.”
