Ed Barrett’s Boston is not the prophetic “city on a hill” that its Puritan founders proclaimed it would be. His Boston is an ocean city, a tidal landscape built over shifting landfill, underground rivers and an underworld of religious, violent dreams of unconditional transcendence. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing triggered the poems in The Sinatra n, poems that race across these pages with lethal riptide quickness.
