Live from the Hong Kong Nile Club : poems, 1975-1990 by August Kleinzahler( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early poems of an American master "I have loved the air outside Shop-Rite Liquor on summer evenings better than the Marin hills at dusk lavender and gold stretching miles to the sea. At the junction, up from the synagogue a weeknight, necessarily and with my father-- a sale on German beer. Air full of living dust: bus exhaust, air-borne grains of pizza crust wounded crystals appearing, disappearing among streetlights and unsuccessful neon."--"Poetics" August Kleinzahler's first collections won him a cult following but have long been out of print and hard to find. Here Kleinzahler--acclaimed by The Times (London) for the "vision and confident skill to make American poetry new"--has selected the best of the poems collected in Storm over Hackensack (1985) and Earthquake Weather (1989) and added an autobiographical Preface
Red sauce, whiskey, and snow by August Kleinzahler( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"August Kleinzahler has been one of American poetry's best-kept secrets for nearly fifteen years. His new collection, Red Sauce, Whiskey and Snow, will dramatically change this situation. The landscapes of these poems are urban, their elements sensuously particularized and positioned to blend in startling and revealing ways. Scenes and characters shift and are spliced together with the audacity and speed of cinematic cuts. But Kleinzahler's signature is his music. His lines are nervously graceful, their movement flexible and deliberate. The voice continually changes register. It is savage, then tender; melancholy, then comic. Combining a broad sweep with deft tactics, his new poems are utterly original and distinctive, a fresh promise for readers weary of the studied postmodernism of much recent poetry."--BOOK JACKET
