The book reflects the poet's concern with the complex interplay of poetry, art, philosophy, and one's own biography. It is a pleasure to read, with prose that is at once serious and playful. As in his poetry, Simic displays his fondness for odd juxtapositions that reveal hidden and unexpected conditions.
