Books By Author August Kleinzahler

Hotel Oneira by August Kleinzahler Hotel Oneira, Hardback (December 2013)

Presents poetry that is concerned with permeability: voices, places, the real and the dreamed, the present and the past, colliding and intersecting and spilling over into each other.

Sleeping it off in Rapid City by August Kleinzahler Sleeping it off in Rapid City, Paperback (February 2011)

Gathers poems from the author's major works along with a rich portion of fresh poems that visit different voice registers, experiment with form and length, and confirm Kleinzahler as among the most inventive and brilliant poets of our time.

Strange Hours Travellers Keep by August Kleinzahler Strange Hours Travellers Keep, Paperback (January 2004)

Ranging from Vegas and Mayfair to the Asian steppes and contemporary Berlin, these poems touch down at will in tableaux where Liberace unceremoniously meets with St Kevin and Attila with Zsa Zsa Gabor.
