About the Author:

Charles Simic was born in 1938 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia and emigrated to the United States in 1954. His first collection was published in 1971, and in the three decades that have followed he has received numerous awards and honours for his work, including the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN International Award for translation. Since 1973, Simic has taught English at the University of New Hampshire.

Review:

"Few contemporary poets have been as influential - or as inimitable - as Charles Simic.' New York Times Book Review; 'Surrealist, and therefore comic, but with a specific gravity in his imagining that manages to avoid the surrealist penalty of weightlessness.' Seamus Heaney; 'There is no American now writing whom I would rather read.' Michael Hofmann"
