From the publisher

The first broad retrospective of August Kleinzahler's career, Sleeping It Off in Rapid City gathers poems from his major works along with a rich portion of new poems that visit different voice registers, experiment with form and length, and confirm Kleinzahler as among the most inventive and brilliant poets of our time. Travel - actual and imaginary - remains a passion and inspiration, and in these pages the poet also finds 'This sanctified ground / Here, yes, here / The dead solid center of the universe / At the heart of the heart of America.'
