The multi-award winning Dickman twins are from America’s outstanding generation of younger poets. Their poetry lives take different expression. Matthew writes with the ebullience of Frank O’Hara, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac; Michael with the control of William Carlos Williams and Emily Dickinson. But they are unified by the unflinching, remarkable verse they wrote when their older brother took his own life. It is these moving, grieving but life-affirming poems that solely comprise this dual-authored volume.
