Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The narrative poems in Dorianne Laux's fifth collection charge through the summer of love, where Vietnam casts a long shadow, and into the present day, where she compassionately paints the smoky bars, graffiti, and addiction of urban life. Laux is continually engaging and, at her best, luminous (San Diego Union-Tribune).from To Kiss Frank, make out with him a bit, this is what my friend would like to do oh these too many dead summers later, and as much as I want to stroll with her into the poet's hazy fancy all I can see is O'Hara's long gone lips fallen free of the bone, slumbering beneath the grainy soil.

Synopsis:

"Dorianne Laux dares to parse her life through the prism of men who've passed through it."--

Synopsis:

" finds Laux at her best. She's witty, engaging, and candid. . . . Echoes of Whitman are everywhere in . Both Whitman and Laux are profoundly democratic poets. Anyone can live in their poems, and their poems can live anywhere."--
