Not yet rated | write a review

Detailing a point of view that is both contentious and genial—somewhere between the outlooks of Archie Bunker and Dale Peck—the wide-ranging poems in this honest collection ponder questions concerning art, history, and psychology while reveling in the sensory experiences of everyday life. Whether exploring the modus operandi of other writers or paralleling the trajectory of a satellite with a badly ended love affair, these conversational and intellectual poems present a unique voice with a comprehensive worldview.

Editorial Reviews

"The best poems here are unquestionably great, and it’s good to see this, possibly the largest of Donnell’s poetry collections in some time . . .  Donnell’s poems are conversational koans, sometimes meaning nothing, meandering from meaning to meaning, topic to idea, bouncing off, sometimes."  —Prairie Fire Review of Books
