Poetry. Dean Young surmounts the failures of love and the body with his signature humor, verbal banter, and wild imaginative leaps. Embracing the elegiac, angry, and amorous with surrealistic wordplay and off-kilter music, Young coaxes us to "fall higher" into an intimate, vulnerable, expansive exchange. This is a major new book by one of America's most inventive poets.

"Anyone with a heartbeat knows that Dean Young has become a crucial nucleotide in the DNA of American poetry."—Tony Hoagland
