    “A loopy pilgrimage from a haunted past into a hopped-up, mad new world” from the Pulitzer Prize winner and former US poet laureate (Newsday). 
     
    Loneliness, loss, sadness, and mystery mark this wonderful volume of forty-nine poems by Charles Simic, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for The World Doesn’t End and praised as “one of the truly imaginative writers of our time” by the Los Angeles Times. 
     
    “A Charles Simic poem starts with a sentence fragment, an ungainly image crash-landing at the feet of a speaker who was expecting something else entirely . . . There is a Central European sensibility at work in his poems.” —The New York Times Book Review 
     
    “Simic is adept at runic inscriptions, fragments of dislodged civilizations, the shards of universal disjunction, and poignant ruin.” —The Washington Post 
     
    “The quality of Simic’s poems has grown steadily over the past two decades, despite a MacArthur ‘genius’ award and last year’s Pulitzer. Such prizes seem piteously small next to the large beauties of his work.” —Harvard Book Review 
     
    “Fifty poems of inimitable grace and beauty.” —Publishers Weekly 
     
    “He touches the reader with an aching impact.” —The Litchfield County Times

    This mirror's selfie-proof, a machine that dams back the gloom.
    After a brief period of mourning, it was the afternoon.
    This mirror is selfie-proof, a machine that dams
    back the gloom. When machines dream they dream
    of stopping. But this bulimic is all hangnails
    with a hankering to throatsing.
    
    
    
    Following the Fratellini Family of clowns, Jeramy Dodds astonishes readers
    and non-readers alike. Techniques such as his patented triumph, the Grand
     Mal Caesura, along with other favourites, are on display inside. Dodds is a warlock of words, only to be outdone by them, enslaved by them, freed by them - maybe even loved by them. A haunting, yet hilarious depiction of a journey to and fro the furthest limits of the human experiment.

    He brings her to Isla Loci, his private resort, to personally train her on sticking to the channel's message. Then Chester, Mark's youngest son from a failed marriage, comes to the island. He's a moody, overweight bookish type who's just graduated from college and hates his father with an intense passion. 
    • What mistake could be so heinous as to get Maria ostracized from an industry that makes questionable journalism calls every day? 
    • What are Mark's intentions towards Maria? Did he really hire her purely for her skill or does he want something more intimate? 
    • How will Chester respond to his father's interest in Maria? Is Chester interested in Maria? What else is Chester interested in... and how could it spell trouble for Mark's empire? 
    Against the backdrop of a tropical paradise, a family conflict is brewing.
