A Finalist for the 2007 Los Angeles Times Book Prize
Now his, the only
overhead turned on. Now nothing else existed:
only him, and the book, and the light thrown over his

Albert Goldbarth has created an unmistakable signature style—learned, copious, hilarious, and heartbreaking. The Kitchen Sink brings together forty new poems with a rich selection of earlier poetry, ranging from the brief, flickering lyric to the long, narrative sequence. This is the definitive book by one of America’s most original and entertaining poets.
