Stephen Kampa’s poems in his debut collection, Cracks in the Invisible (Ohio University Press, $16.95), are restless in their pursuit of an intelligent modern faith. They range from a four-line satire of office inspirational posters to a lengthy meditation on the silence of God. “Kampa possesses a Byronic delight in and virtuosity with rhyme. . . It's rather extraordinary that this is only his first book.”—The Hopkins Review.
