The Afterlife of Objects by Dan Chiasson

Both intensely personal and rooted in recognizable events of American life, The Afterlife of Objects is a kind of dreamed autobiography. The enigmas of an individual mind become, in Dan Chiasson's poems, puzzles with wider social and historical significance. This sophisticated debut collection asks us to imagine our selves back into real life, evoking highly complex states of mind and feeling in a voice both highly lyrical and pitched to the discordant music of contemporary life.
