In his fourteenth collection of poetry, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner James Tate continues exploring his own peculiar brand of poetry, transforming our everyday world into one where women give birth to wolves, wild babies are found in gardens, and Saint Nick visits on a hot July day. Tate's signature style draws on a marvelous variety of voices and characters, all of which sound vaguely familiar, but are each fantastically unique, brilliant, and eccentric. Yet, as Charles Simic observed in The New York Review of Books , "With all his reliance on chance, Tate has a serious purpose. He's searching for a new way to write a lyric poem." He continues, "To write a poem out of nothing at all is Tate's genius. For him, the poem is something one did not know was there until it was written down ... Just about anything can happen next in this kind of poetry and that is its attraction ... Tate is not worried about leaving us a little dazed ... He succeeds in ways for which there are few precedents. He makes me think that anti-poetry is the best friend poetry ever had."

Born in Kansas City, Tate erupted upon the poetry scene when, in 1967, at the age of 23, he received the Yale Series of Young Poets award for The Lost Pilot (1967). Within two years of his stunning debut, Tate had another dozen collections in print or accepted for publication. Remarkable for his originality and control, Tate has declared himself to be "in the tradition of the Impurists: Whitman, Williams, Neruda . . . I am trying to combine words in such a way as to lend a new life, a new hope, to that which is lifeless and hopeless." He has taken as his themes the agony of communication and the difficulties of having been treated as a poetic prodigy.
