Little Kisses, Paperback / softback Book

Little Kisses Paperback / softback

Part of the Phoenix Poets series


Called "the master of the poetic one-liner" by the New York Times, acclaimed poet and critic Lloyd Schwartz takes his characteristic tragicomic view of life to some unexpected and disturbing places in this, his fourth book of poetry.

Here are poignant and comic poems about personal loss the mysterious disappearance of his oldest friend, his mother's failing memory, a precious gold ring gone missing along with uneasy love poems and poems about family, identity, travel, and art with all of its potentially recuperative power.

Humane, deeply moving, and curiously hopeful, these poems are distinguished by their unsentimental but heartbreaking tenderness, pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, formal surprises, and exuberant sense of humor.
