Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this collection of poems, Williams employs

elements of both the narrative and surrealistic

lyric--addressing subjects as diverse as family, alienation, political quandary, and artistic

desire--in order to craft a darkly humorous and generally hard-hitting vision of the current state of

contemporary America. In the words of Bob Hicok:

"This is not the misanthrope's attack but the lover's

hope for something better and true: a genuine self,

a sustaining culture."
