The Actor Is Happy

The Actor Is Happy

20.00

George Huitker’s second collection of poems intensifies and widens the concerns of his first book, An Unfamiliar Sea. The poems here are vivid and striking, yet admirably modest: in his exploration of the ordinary things in life, Huitker refuses to sacrifice the particularity of experience for grand gestures of meaning. Instead, experiences drawn from teaching in a high school, family entanglements and voices half-heard in the rush of living - these are allowed to be intensely themselves, to live.
