The Boss (McSweeney's Poetry) (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
Hard to Find
Written in "a breathless kind of fury," the poems in award-winning poet Victoria Chang's virtuosic third collection The Boss dance across the page with the brutal power and incandescent beauty of spring lightning. Obsessive, brilliant, linguistically playful--the mesmerizing world of The Boss is as personal as it is distinctly post-9/11. The result is a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind exploration of contemporary American culture, power structures, family life, and ethnic and personal identity.
