Synopsis: This is a collection of poems by Bob Hicok.

From the Back Cover: "Hicok is funny as hell, in Blake's sense of the infernal: irreverent, anarchic, undeceived. His bracing ill humor is a vehicle for outrage, longing, tenderness, and a sly cynicism that is the necessary counterbalance to a tenacious sense of hope. He is one of our premiere anatomists of contemporary American life, and a wildly refreshing, necessary poet."-Mark Doty

"[Hicok] writes with an honest man's happy discontent. . . . His poems stand on that inconvenient ground where the absurd and romantic visions battle for the voice and transmit the full joyful and afflicted human creature. He is one of the finest poets to have emerged in the last ten years."-Rodney Jones

"The sophisticated jester of these soliloquies, dumbfounded by the simplicity and complexity of life, is on a hang glider headed straight for Olympus."-Mary Ruefle

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Book Description University of Pittsburgh Press, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bob Hicok s poems are often edgy, brazen, and funny. They re just as likely to be soulful, reflective, and provocative. Usually at the same time. As Hicok builds toward the punchline of a poem set up with his characteristic wit, he zigs into seriousness. A thoughtful meditation that builds to a moment of epiphany zags into comedy. Hicok s fluid ability to shift moods, the richness of his visual palette, and his idiosyncratic use of language fill the pages of Insomnia Diary. The fourth collection of poetry from this former automotive dle designer delivers more of the cunning brilliance that has become Hicok s hallmark. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780822958420
