The Apple That Astonished Paris (Hardback)Billy Collins (author)
Hardback 64 Pages / Published: 12/06/2006
- Not available
One of the most readable and accessible poets to appear in a long time, Billy Collins strikes at the deepest concerns of the human heart and mind. Frequently, Collins sets up a premise, based on a comically unusual interpretation of an everyday situation, and then proceeds to unwind the premise in ways that are as delightful as they are disturbing. His metaphysical wit and cosmic puzzlement, always expressed in a clean, direct, unpretentious idiom, will touch every reader who is fascinated by the play of a truly original imagination and a disarming way of seeing the world.
