Description - Go Giants by Nick Laird
Go Giants, Nick Laird's stunning third volume of poetry, is full of "epic ambition." In a collection that's "easily his most accomplished to date...[Laird] gives everything of himself in a poetry as expansive and thought-provoking as his considered response to an infinitely complicated universe needs it to be" (The Guardian). Laird boldly engages with topics ranging from fatherhood and marriage to mass destruction and the cosmos. Go Giants is a brash, brave, and wildly imaginative new collection. From Go Giants: Go in peace to love and serve the. Go and get help. Go directly to jail. Go down in flames. Go up in smoke. Go for broke. Go tell Aunt Rhody. Go tell the Spartans. Go to hell. Go into detail. Go for the throat.
