Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "TULIP FARMS AND LEPER COLONIES is a brilliant and funny motion picture of American life, narrated by Charles Harper Webb, but starring all of us-especially those of us who wince at the word 'downsizing,' open personal form letters announcing a ten million dollar prize, and watch Laurel and Hardy. In poem after amazing poem, Webb gets it exactly right, his extraordinary vision transforming our words into our world. Here is a book by a major poet of the twenty-first century whose work is both complex and accessible"-Maura Stanton. Webb is the author of five previous books of poetry, including Liver, which won the 1999 Felix Pollack Prize, and Reading the Water, which won the S.F. Morse Poetry Prize and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award.

Synopsis:

In Tulip Farms and Leper Colonies, Charles Harper Webb's poetry goes anywhere, memorably presenting the human animal in all its wondrous foolishness and beauty. No issue of contemporary life, be it mundane pop culture or metaphysical high art, (not even poesy) escapes his rapiers.

Charles Harper Webbwas a rock guitarist for fifteen years and is now a licensed psychotherapist and professor at California State University. He has written five books of poetry, including Liver, which won the 1999 Felix Pollak Prize, and Reading the Water, which won the S.F. Morse Poetry Prize and Kate Tufts Discovery Award. He lives in Long Beach, California.
