"Mark Yakich's new collection approaches questions of tragedy (e.g., war, genocide, fallen souffles) with discerning humor and unconventional comedy. These poems show how humor can be taken as seriously as straight-ahead solemnity and how we can re-envision solemnity in terms other than lamentation, protest, and memorial."--BOOK JACKET.
