From the Pulitzer Prizewinning former poet laureate, a collection of elegiac, irreverent new poemsan American master at the height of his talentThe latest volume of poetry from Charles Simic hums with the liveliness of the writers pen. Scribbled in the Dark brings the poets signature sardonic sense of humor, piercing social insight, and haunting lyricism to diverse and richly imagined landscapes. Peopled by policemen, presidents, kids in Halloween masks, a fortune-teller, and a fly on the wall of the poets kitchen; set on crowded New York streets, on park benches, and under darkened skies; the pages within toy with the end of the world and its infinity. Simic continues to be an inimitable voice in modern American poetry and one of its finest chroniclers of the human condition.
