His keen grasp of human nature and a unique style of verse made Ogden Nash, in the mid-twentieth century, the most widely read and frequently quoted poet of his time. For years, readers have longed for a biography to match Nash's charm, wit, and good nature; now we have it in Douglas Parker's absorbing and delightful life of the poet. Intelligent, informative, and engaging...There is no comparable study not only of Nash's life but also of the role that poetry, especially comic verse, played in modern American literary culture...A story long overdue in the telling. -Dana Gioia
