Track is a book-length poem, originally released in the USA in 3 volumes by Spuyten Divil. Praise for the work includes —


"Norman Finkelstein's Track undertakes a voyage beset by recombinatory duress. An excursis through realms where "the letters / arrive to be destroyed," this wickedly wise poem keeps on arriving long after it's done—a lingering trade or track of mind in mind, trouble in mind. It is a beautiful, beguiling book of unrest."  —Nathaniel Mackey

"Track beautifully reminds us that pain and uncertainty are 'to be exchanged for music'. This is a haunting 'broken crown' of a poem in which language's power to name transmutes loss simultaneously into celebration and epiphany.  —Michael Heller

"The cumulative sense and soul of so many passages ventured, so many thresholds crossed, shed a perfect radiance. In Track, the light is solid." —Donald Revell

"Paradise is the track we're following in this poem, the spoor we're on, the prey we're tracking… Finkelstein has created an amazing new kind of poem — as tensile as it is frangible, as spiritually reviving as it is philosophically zeroing." —Peter O'Leary
