Publisher Comments:

Derrick Brown's fourth and final collection of poetry and short stories is a unrelenting machine of honesty that has been called his finest collection of new work. Strange Light takes us back to the docks, to a violent drama class and boring prom, an undersea conversation with Jacques Cousteau, and into his famous romantic bursts of verse. The epic poem, Strange Light, anchors this collection as one of the most inventive and potent collections of modern American poetry. About.com called his 2009 collection Scandalabra, one of the best books of the year. Everything hilarious and stirring is illuminated. The power of Strange Light is waiting.

I recently had the incredible fortune to catch Derrick read from this new work at Club Passim in Cambridge. His presence is a force- as are his words. His pairing of words is striking and the images and ideas cut close to the bone but in a comforting way - if that makes sense. Couldn't get enough.
