"A scion of the New York School, Edmund Berrigan grew up in and around poetry. More Gone, number 18 in our Spotlight Poetry Series, is his first full-length collection in a decade, as well as the first to follow his well-received memoir Can It! Written in a distinctive mix of New York quotidian and post-Language abstraction, More Gone documents the poet's search for domestic tranquility amidst the city that never sleeps. Berrigan draws on a variety of materials, from songs to found language, assembling them into poems of oblique humor and wry perspective on the challenges of everyday existence"-- Provided by publisher.
