Book Description

17 April 1995

August Kleinzahler is foremost among the generation of American poets now in their mid-forties who, with substantial work already behind them, are just becoming known in this country. Red Sauce, Whiskey and Snow is his first major British publication.

'August Kleinzahler makes lyric sense of urban grit and neon. His wide-awake poems have an intimacy of attention new to American writing. Read him slowly; study the details; every phrase is an event.' Guy Davenport

2.0 out of 5 stars No beef 8 Jun 2011
By Simon Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
The Economist rated this (as did *Helen Vendler*); I don't. For why, see my review of The Strange Hours Travelers Keep. Make those titles more snappy, Kleinzahler! (A good title for the latter would have been Addled Geometry (p69) but I'm afraid the work wouldn't have lived up to it.)
