The Pillow Books

Inspired by The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, the 11th century musings by a lady to the Japanese Empress Consort Teishi, Karen Mulhallen’s poetry collection The Pillow Books merges the deeply personal with linguistic precision. Mulhallen draws not only from this Japanese work, but from the landscape of locations around the world, from the Toronto Islands all the way to Bosnia and Herzogovina, Hungary, Turkey, and Italy.
