The 44 stories of Dreams of a Robot Dancing Bee--long-awaited by fans of Tate's poetry--will come as a welcome surprise to readers unfamiliar with his previous work. Tate seems both awed and bemused by small town life, with its legends, flights of fancy, heightened emotions, tragedies and small ruptures in the fabric of ordinary existence.
