Night Moves

Author/Editor: Stephanie Barber


Poetry. Night Moves (2013) by Stephanie Barber is a collection of thoughts and conversations about Bob Seger’s classic song of the same name, all culled from YouTube. Poignant, disturbing and incisive, the collection deepens and takes on a cultural significance beyond the initial artistic impetus. A collaboration is created—twisting through the nostalgia for youth and the collective ownership of pop music, the book becomes a moving document of how strangers communicate about art, and what the song and the sentiment of the song means to different people.

“This is a sad and powerful book of love poems. Stephanie Barber understands how things are supposed to work and recognizes that they are broken, and NIGHT MOVES is a screenshot for the help desk in the sky. It’s a conceptual ode to Internet philosophy, solidifying the transient nature of online conversation.”—Kenneth Goldsmith

“Here comes everybody, and they’ve sure got a lot to say about Bob Seger’s 1976 song ‘Night Moves.’ Lifted whole from YouTube user comments, this book unfurls like a readymade litany of misspelled youth.”—Jeanne Liotta
