Format: Paperback
Gary Lark has assembled a nice collection of poems that have two big things going for them. First, they make sense. The poems tell a story, or provoke a question. There isn't any of the "what the heck is he talking about" poetry here. Leave that stuff to the professoriate.

The other fine thing is the "music" of the poems. They have a good sound, and are fine to read aloud.

Here's a bit from "Getting By" that was read by Garrison Keillor on the Writer's Almanac:

"Daddy drove cat for old man Stimpson
until he rolled it down the mountain
and broke his back. They said he was lucky,
being thrown clear. But Daddy said
Pain talked to him every day
and he didn't like the conversation."

Gary Lark's MEN AT THE GATES is simply one of the best poetry books I have ever read. This man has a unique voice, and is one of the best poets of our generation. I look forward to reading his next collection.
