Reel to Reel
Alan Shapiro

The newest book from Alan Shapiro, whose previous book was a finalist for the National Book Award, moves beyond his usual concerns of family and home to take on larger issues, like politics and culture.

Praise for Alan Shapiro:

“What makes Shapiro so important to American poetry right now is the success with which he’s taken over the territory of fiction writers. While his poems maintain the compression and intensity of lyric, they also open to the twists and bursts of colloquial American speech, that mongrel medium with which we craft our lives together … His poems are both artful and unpretentious.”—Boston Review

Benjamin Landry

“The poetry of everyday (and not so everyday) objects has seldom been as strikingly realized as in this exciting first collection.”—John Ashbery

“The periodic table serves to frame Landry’s work … but it’s not a distancing device. Instead, Landry uses each element suggestively to create a range of voices that personalize key cultural and historical moments from the eruption of Vesuvius to the recent housing bust.”—Library Journal
