Item description for Vacationland by Ander Monson...
These are pleasure-inducing lamentations with an enticingly experimental edge. They elegize Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the copper mines, tourism, family, amateur radio, winter and much more. These poems are affected by the claustrophobic, half-year Michigan winters, where the nearest city is a four-hour car ride. Monson's is a wildly original mind, creating exotic variations on traditional forms.
Ander Monson draws from his life in Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, the deep South and Saudi Arabia. He has an MFA from the University of Alabama. He edits the magazine DIAGRAM and the New Michigan Press and publishes widely. His novel in stories, Other Electricities, will be released by Sarabande Books.
