The 37 poems in Throwbacks—elegant, witty, sometimes disturbingly direct—explore public and private worlds and their surprising intersections. Often set in a distinctly unpicturesque New England, they are poems about sex, love, death, and aging, about the pressures of the marketplace and the ambiguities of human relationships. It is a collection sure to be enjoyed by seasoned poetry lovers as well as newcomers to the genre.
