Kevin Connolly’s four previous poetry books have garnered widespread critical acclaim and awards for their cutting humor, vivid language, and lyricism. Now comes Revolver. A daring marriage of brilliant technical skill and feverish imagination, Revolver features poems that are each written in a different form revolving” through various styles while imbuing each with the precise control and sharp wit for which Connolly is noted. This much-anticipated follow-up to drift is both an ideal introduction to this master poet and a worthy successor to his earlier work.

"Each of the 45 poems in Kevin Connolly's Revolver is written in a different form or vocal register - "revolving" through poetic personae and possibilities. Taken together, they present a challenge to the idea that an honest poetic voice need be singular, static, egocentric, and bound by convention. Cycling through subjects as trivial as a late-inning curveball and as loaded as the paradox of time itself, these poems address the broad range of human experience: elation and cynicism, joy and grief, terror and love."--BOOK JACKET.
