From the publisher

David Shapiro's poetry speaks with far-ranging erudition while playing across the surface of American English with a lyric sensibility unparalleled in contemporary verse. In this, his tenth book-length volume of poetry, readers can explore the breadth and depth of this iconoclastic poet's oeuvre. Shapiro's work plumbs the ecstatic chaos of postmodern life with a voice that, in all its manifestations, remains simultaneously playful and lyrical. This volume celebrates Shapiro as one of America's greatest poets.
