Doubles (Phoenix Poets)

Doubles (Phoenix Poets) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Doubles is at once tough-minded and urbane, veering from lyricism to street slang, oscillating with the beat of the American city. As his title suggests, Polito's world is one of doubling, simulation, impersonation, and mimicry—a shrewd vision of urban life.

About the Author

Robert Polito is director of the Writing Program at the New School for Social Research in New York. He is the author of A Reader's Guide to James Merrill's The Changing Light at Sandover (1994), among other critical works, and a biography of novelist Jim Thompson, Savage Art (1995).
