An eagerly awaited new collection of poems by contemporary favorite Tony Hoagland, author of Donkey Gospel "How did I come to believe in a government called Tony Hoagland?""With an economy based on flattery and self-protection?""and a sewage system of selective forgetting?""and an extensive history of broken promises?"""--from "Argentina" In "What Narcissism Means to Me," award-winning poet Tony Hoagland levels his particular brand of acute irony not only on the personal life, but also on some provinces of American culture. In playful narratives, lyrical outbursts, and overheard conversations, Hoagland cruises the milieu, exploring the spiritual vacancies of American satisfaction. With humor, rich tonal complexity, and aggressive moral intelligence, these poems bring pity to our folly and celebrate our resilience.
