“Deeply personal, yet coolly postmodern, no other writer besides David Trinidad makes the interface between our private memories and our cultural ones seem so seamless. Variously giddy, gossipy, melancholy, obsessive, and euphoric, Trinidad's voice has an amazing plasticity as he slips between genres and forms, tradition and invention, with assurance and grace. The Late Show is a unique collection of interlocking facets: part literary memoir, part film encyclopedia, part shrine and memento mori—and always undeniably, pure poem.”—Elaine Equi

“A beautiful study in detail and devotion. . . . Frame by frame this book is a tremendously engaging, soulful read.”—Anselm Berrigan

About the Author:

David Trinidad teaches at Columbia College, Chicago. He has taught at Rutgers, Princeton and Antioch (L.A.). His previous poetry collection, Plasticville, was published by Turtle Point Press in 2000. That book was shortlisted for the Lenore Marshall Prize of The Academy of American Poets. With Denise Duhamel and Maureen Seaton he edited Saints of Hysteria.

From Publishers Weekly:

Trinidad's 13th collection is a cinematic recuperation of the more and less significant people, places, encounters and objects that compose the movie of a life. In these loquacious, unfettered and sometimes playful poems, Trinidad painstakingly recalls divas, artists, friends, lovers and his mother. In looking back, the poet couches his memories in pop culture and formal experimentation: his Nature Poem is a clever arrangement of movie titles (How a Tree Grows in Brooklyn/ Autumn Leaves// Lost Horizon/ Gone with the Wind), and Gloss of the Past is an indulgent prose catalogue of pink lip gloss names (Fluffy Moth Pink... Turn Pale Pink). In rambling, accumulative elegies in long lines or prose, a jar of Topaze cream (a yellow jewel embedded in the lid) is one of many relentlessly remembered details that accrue toward simple, moving admissions, such as: I miss my mother. The long closing piece, A Poem Under the Influence, is a confessional and discursive look at the past by an obsessively collecting and recollecting mind that admits: Better to look pinkly through a glass at the tarnished past,/ count my blessings (on both hands), and call it a day. But I have to ask: why... (Sept.)
