In this collection, winner of the 1990 Pulitzer Prize, Charles Simic puns, pulls pranks. He can be jazzy and streetwise. Or cloak himself in antiquity. Simic has new eyes, and in these wonderful poems and poems-in-prose he lets the reader see through them.

This is an absolutely fantastic 'prose poem' by whom I consider to be the only great living poet. It changed my perceptions, perhaps my life as well - and also gave me some nightmares.
