Overview

Once more the anthropologist of our American scene brings us his reports from the present. With a ruthless gaze, Tony Hoagland attends to all the details of modern frailty and human joy. "What is wrong with you?" he asks of "His Majesty Mr.-Boombox-In-My-Jeep" driving the beach road at 2 AM. What is wrong with all of us? these poems want to know and set off finding out. Don't Tell Anyone is a chronicle of life, love, marriage, sex and shopping as only Tony Hoagland is able to render such things. His poems speak conversationally as if your good friend is telling you a story, but there is great wit and inventiveness behind each of them. Don't tell anyone -- tell everyone about these poems.
