The Late Show: Poems (Paperback)
"Deeply personal, yet coolly postmodern, no other writer besides David Trinidad makes the interface between our private memories and our cultural ones seem so seamless. Variously giddy, gossipy, melancholy, obsessive, and euphoric, Trinidad's voice has an amazing plasticity as he slips between genres and forms, tradition and invention, with assurance and grace. The Late Show is a unique collection of interlocking facets: part literary memoir, part film encyclopedia, part shrine and memento mori--and always undeniably, pure poem."--Elaine Equi
"A beautiful study in detail and devotion. . . . Frame by frame this book is a tremendously engaging, soulful read."--Anselm Berrigan
