The Best Disguise

The Best Disguise by Susan McLean, recipient of the 2009 Richard Wilbur Award, is a remarkable collection of varied lyric poems that examine contemporary life with wit, insight, and a profound intensity. As Philip Dacey comments, "In any mode -- plangent or bawdy, searing or witty -- the poems in this book consistently project both a consummate artistry and an affecting humanity." Despite the author s obvious erudition and formal skills, the poems in The Best Disguise are as accessible as they are affecting and memorable.
