Publisher Comments:

"Friend to objects, saints and dead celebrities alike, Elaine Equi is the real McCoy: a keeper of the sacred flame of language-joy. Her work re-alerts us to our earliest love of words as toys, jewels, confections. In doing so she juices up our thinking. What’s better than writing that delights as it sharpens the mind? You’ve heard of ‘smart drinks’ or ‘smart drugs,’ said to chemically boost intellect? These are truly smart poems."—Amy Gerstler, L.A. Weekly

Elaine Equi is the author of many books, including Voice-Over, which won the San Francisco State Poetry Award. Widely anthologized, her poems appear in Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology and The Best American Poetry for the years 1989, 1995, and 2002. She lives in New York City.

Synopsis:

Clear yet complex, these poems animate the things closest to us--objects, fantasies, culture high and low.
