"Space, in Chains speaks in ghostly voices, fractured narratives, songs, prayers, and dark riddles as it moves through contemporary tragedies of grief and the complex succession of generations. In her eighth book of poetry, Laura Kasischke has pared theconstruction of her verse to its bones, leaving haunting language and a visceral strangeness of imagery. by turns mournful and celebratory, Kasischke's poetry insists upon asking hard questions that are courageously left unanswered."--Cover, p. [4].

This long poem may draw its name from the pair of probes now exiting our solar system, but its principal concern lay with the complexities of life on Earth. Among the many artifacts loaded onto the probes is a greeting to extraterrestrials from a man with a controversial past, former UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim. Reddy takes a memoir written by Waldheim and blots out words, sculpting the older work into a reflection on history and humanity's long-standing questions.
