Tony Hoagland is the author of five previous poetry collections, including Application for Release from the Dream and What Narcissism Means to Me, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"Hoagland's poems are ripe with emotion. Some are sharpened to such a fine point that the reader won't feel the dagger of humor with which they've been stabbed. . . . This is the poetry of resistance, resistance as unstoppable force."--Signature Reads
