Summary (From the publisher):

Charles Simic fills the wee hours of his poetry with angels and pigs, riddles and cemeteries. With empty offices and dolls that smile. With the sound of bare feet upstairs and a single kiss before the shadows converge.

His is the rich, haunted world of East European memory and American present. It is a world full of his own creation, one always full of luminous surprise.
