The not-at-all-everyday new poetry collection by Albert Goldbarth, twice winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award

I brought a book of many words
to an emptiness in my heart,
and I shook them out in there, to fill it.
In my time I wrote this very thing.
In your time you read it.
--from "What We Were Like"

Virtuoso poet Albert Goldbarth returns with a new collection that describes the wonders of everyday people--overprotective parents, online gamblers, newlyweds, Hercules, and Jesus. In Goldbarth's poetry--expansive, wild, and hilarious--he argues that our ordinary failures, heroics, joy, and grief are worth giving voice to, giving thanks for. Everyday People is an extraordinary new book by a poet who "in thirty-five years of writing has amassed a body of work as substantial and intelligent as that of anyone in his generation" (William Doreski, The Harvard Review ).
