Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Manhattan to the rural Midwest--one of our most distinguished poets offers a verbal cinema of America. Employing dramatic monologues, among other forms, Usher embraces a range of subject matter and modes, from the elegiac to the comic. At its heart, however, is the long poem "Trilogy," consisting of three interrelated dramatic monologues spoken by a circus performer, a theological student and part-time usher, and Hart Crane. A Favorite Book of 2009.

Synopsis:

"Meaty, maximalist, driven by narrative, [Fairchild] stakes out an American mythos."--David Ulin,
