Paul Pines’s new volume of poetry is also illustrated—in this case by Marc Shanker. The poems and illustrations make up a lively dialogue throughout. Like Lera Auerbach, Pines is also something of a polymath, and his poems manifest a deep interest in fields ranging from cosmology to jazz, the movies, and baseball. He also draws on his experience as a psychotherapist. Like one of his heroes, the physicist Wolfgang Pauli, Pines’ basic sense of well-being is derived from a memory that remembers itself.
