Staff Pick: "Two collections of poetry bound into one wander around two opposite ends of the USA: San Francisco and New Jersey. Feeling like a solo road trip, there is a quiet to Kleinzahler’s words, softly spoken yet heard.
“And who were they all in your sleep last night/chatting so/you’d think that when you woke/the living room would be full of friends and ghosts?”"
