Virtuoso poet Albert Goldbarth returns with a new collection that describes the wonders of everyday people—overprotective parents, online gamblers, newlyweds, Hercules, and Jesus. In Goldbarth’s poetry—expansive, wild, and hilarious—he argues that our ordinary failures, heroics, joy, and grief are worth giving voice to, giving thanks for. Everyday People is an extraordinary new book by a poet who “in thirty-five years of writing has amassed a body of work as substantial and intelligent as that of anyone in his generation” (William Doreski, The Harvard Review).

REVIEWS

Praise for Everyday People

"He's an intellectual omnivore, but his interpretation never comes at the expense of the reader’s own . . . One of our most generous working poets, and that generosity extends to a type of thank you found in the book's concluding poem, which ends, 'In my time I wrote this very thing./In your time you read it.'"—Steve Kistulentz, The Rumpus
