Summary

"Hilarity transfiguring all that dread, manic overflow of powerful feeling, zero at the bone-- Fliesrenders its desolation with singular invention and focus and figuration: the making of these poems makes them exhilarating."--James Laughlin Award citation "Reading Michael [Dickman] is like stepping out of an overheated apartment building to be met, unexpectedly, by an exhilaratingly chill gust of wind."-- The New Yorker "These are lithe, seemingly effortless poems, poems whose strange affective power remains even after several readings."-- The Believer Winner of the James Laughlin Award for the best second book by an American poet, Fliespresents an uncompromising vision of joy and devastating loss through a strict economy of language and an exuberant surrealism. Michael Dickman's poems bring us back to the wonder and violence of childhood, and the desire to connect with a power greater than ourselves. What you want to remember of the earth and what you end up remembering are often two different things Michael Dickmanwas born and raised in Portland, Oregon. His first book of poems, The End of the West, appeared in 2009 and became the best-selling debut in the history of Copper Canyon Press. His poems appear frequently in The New Yorker, and he teaches poetry at Princeton University.
