Like moonlight, McCann's attention gives weird clarity and an alien glow to post-industrial landscapes and human interiors. These poems are startling and irreverent, but also emotional and approachable. They uncivilize us into seeing the world as both ruin and possibility: "It was danger/ gave them life/ but damage/ makes us shine." Anthony McCann is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His books include I Heart Your Fate, Moongarden, and Father of Noise. He lives in Los Angeles.
