Night Clerk at the Hotel of Both Worlds

Angela Ball

Publication Year: 2007

Winner of the 2006 Donald Hall Prize in Poetry. Angela Ball’s lyrical, wry, and rueful poems float on a river of incongruities on which we may find Ron Popeil, Lord Byron, and Rudyard Kipling sharing the same raft; they create a fascinating commerce between the sublime and the ridiculous.
