"Mark Perlberg's poems are deeply felt, their language concrete, alive, moving. Whether his verses are about his family, meditations on time and memory, love poems, or even ghost narratives, his concerns are broadly humane. His voice is sometimes lyric, sometimes narrative - often in the same poem - but always unmistakably his own." "Perlberg's approach is sometimes blunt, occasionally surreal, but invariably vivid and without a touch of sentimentality or cliche. With language both animated and immediate, The Impossible Toystore is a pure joy to read."--BOOK JACKET.
