Product Overview

By responding to loss with humor and by appreciating the world in all its quirky variety and odd detail, this collection meanders from an imaginary village to Manhattan, from southern California to London, from Arizona to the Czech Republic, finally coming to rest in the mysterious comforts of the Illinois prairie. Rich with original observation and wry commentary, these poems are lushly rendered with an unashamed wordiness. Incorporating a range of cultural touch points, each piece deftly pulls from a broad reference spectrum, including classic literature, Raggedy Ann, the notorious hangings at Newgate Prison, the ubiquitous Dear John letter, William Shakespeare, Bob Dylan, and John Keats's fianc?e Fanny Brawne. Sensual and lushly engaged to its many worlds, the assorted works collected here evoke an altogether formal and thematic experience.
