About the Author

Albert Goldbarth has been publishing poetry collections of note for forty-five years—two of which have received the National Book Critics Circle Award. Individual poems have appeared in hundreds of periodicals from the New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine to Kayak and Clown War. A recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the Poetry Foundation, he lives in Wichita, Kansas.


"Albert Goldbarth's new collection is a community of poems that makes room for other voices than the autobiographical 'I': some fantastical, some historical/celebrity, some the neighbors down the block. The poems themselves offer a rich spectrum of possibilities, from the comic to the grievous, from a poem of five lines to a poem of six pages, but all presented by a poet whose broad understanding of history and of a wide range of character types allows him to people his writing with everyone from presidents to prostitutes, and from ancient mythmakers to contemporary celebrities—all the while remaining present as a smart and earnest voice."—Stephen Corey, editor of the Georgia Review

"Goldbarth just may be the American poet of his generation for the ages."—Judith Kitchen, author of What Persists: Selected Essays on Poetry
