Galluccio's Sarasota VII is a prose-poem that was inspired by the works of Paul Auster, Margurite Duras and Elizabeth Smart. In two parts, this experimental work of passionate memoir explores how death and place and desire intersect in a studio in Florida overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Part 1 explores her lover's loss of his sister Teres, from "evil winning in the
motives of a handful of boys." In the 2nd part, Galluccio writes of her own father's untimely death and her resolve to become whole through years of grief and fragmentation. The theatre in Texas serves as the backdrop for Galluccio's relentless musings. The voracious pull of black holes and the pure ice water of Saturn's rings intermittently interlace the book's narrative rant as a surreal leit motif.
