The Ledge by Michael Collier

Michael Collier's much acclaimed fourth collection of poetry poises experience on the ledge between the everyday and the unknown. In The Ledge, the poems are narrative and colloquial, musical and crystalline, at once intimate and sharp-edged. The world is rendered beautifully mysterious as the poems slide into unexpected emotional territory. The artistry and directness of The Ledge confirm Collier's place among the most significant poets of his generation.
