Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Pinsky has . . . the magician's dazzling quickness fused with subtle intelligence, a taste for tasks and assignments to which he devises ingenious solutions.”—Louise Glück

In these new poems the humble objects of everyday life—door, photograph, newspaper, pen, book—become artifacts pointing to the very center of human difference.

Robert Pinsky’s books include The Want Bone, The Figured Wheel: Collected Poems 1966-1996, and Jersey Rain. Among his awards are the William Carlos Williams Prize, the Shelley Memorial Award, and the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize. From 1997 to 2000 he was the US Poet Laureate. He currently teaches at Boston University.

Synopsis:

Fifth edition in Sarabande's Quarternote Chapbook Series.
