Wish he'd publish another collection, but at least I'll have another few readings of this one before I can even say that I've tentatively digested it. Thanks much to B & L for the loan. Now I need to buy it for myself. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965618366, Hardcover)

David Berman reinvents the overlooked and seemingly ordinary details of everyday life--from the suitcase of a departing girlfriend to a baseboard electrical outlet. His poems chart a course through his own highly original American dreamscape in language that is fresh, accessible, and remarkably precise. This debut collection has received extraordinary acclaim from readers and reviewers alike and is quickly becoming a cult classic. As Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Tate said, "These poems are beautiful, strange, intelligent, and funny. . . . It's a book for everyone."
