NPR Summary

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.
