From the Back Cover:

Winner of the prestigious Poets' Prize for 1990, Miller Williams is one of America's most accomplished and productive contemporary poets. In this collection, we find the same wit, intelligence, wisdom, and humanity that readers of poetry have come to expect of Williams. These poems are about the daily lives and language of ordinary--and some extraordinary--people whose idiom and imagery evoke familiar rhythms. Embracing the particular and peculiar facts of life, Williams transforms them into a formalized and dignified design, celebrating the facts and furniture of this world.

About the Author:

Miller Williams is the author of ten books of poetry, most recently Living on the Surface. He is the recipient of many honors, including the Prix de Rome given by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Williams is University Professor of English and Foreign Languages at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and is also Director of the University of Arkansas Press.
