From Pulitzer Prize-winner Mark Strand comes an exquisitely witty and poignant series of prose poems. Sometimes appearing as pure prose, sometimes as impure poetry, but always with Strand's clarity and simplicity of style, they are like riddles, their answers vanishing just as they appear within reach. Fable, domestic satire, meditation, joke, and fantasy all come together in what is arguably the liveliest, most entertaining book that Strand has yet written.

Not my favorite Strand by a long shot. I do love that he is always trying new formats and there's a playfulness in the language as well as in the content. But, some are successful while others are not for me in this collection.

This new set of poems by Mark Strand is a bit dark, but short. The way they were written were new to me, but very good. This, in other words, is a good read.
