Author(s): David Berman
Poems by the late David Berman from the Drag City bands Silver Jews and Purple Mountains. David passed in August 2019.
David Berman reinvented the overlooked and seemingly ordinary details of everyday life - from the suitcase of a departing girlfriend to a baseboard electrical outlet.
His poems chart a course through his own highly original American dreamscape in language that is fresh, accessible, and remarkably precise.
This debut collection received extraordinary acclaim from readers and reviewers alike and is quickly becoming a cult classic. As Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Tate said, "These poems are beautiful, strange, intelligent, and funny. . . . It's a book for everyone."
