Equally crude and charming, locker-room macho and sensitive, these poems are always singularly marked by formal ingenuity and stylistic elan. A deeply felt and original collection, this work understands that (as its epigraph, in the words of Diderot, insists) there is a bit of testicle at the bottom of our most sublime feelings and our purest tenderness.
