Item description for The Making of Collateral Beauty by Mark Yakich...
This small volume is both companion to and descendant of Yakich's award-winning Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross. Each poem here shares a title with a poem in the previous book. Each expands on its namesake poem, giving the background, but a background you've never imagined! When a poet as vital and innovative as Yakich is telling the story behind the poem, the vignettes and characters that emerge from behind the scenes are as exuberant and playful as the originals.
Mark Yakich's first book of poems, Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross, was a winner of the 2003 National Poetry Series. He is an assistant professor of English at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant.
