Pataky stays close to the music of silence, turning his gaze to the capsizing boundaries between interior and exterior worlds. We feel his persistent concern with shelter, his awareness of the distances between people, and of the barometric pressures of isolation. Overwinter is an exquisite surveying of depths, a book of immense beauty and witness, its light “forging colors from air.” —Joanna Klink
