Live from the Hong Kong Nile Club: Poems: 1975-1990 by August Kleinzahler

The early poems of an American master

"I have loved the air outside Shop-Rite Liquor

on summer evenings

better than the Marin hills at dusk

lavender and gold

stretching miles to the sea.

At the junction, up from the synagogue

a weeknight, necessarily

and with my father--

a sale on German beer.

Air full of living dust:

bus exhaust, air-borne grains of pizza crust

wounded crystals

appearing, disappearing

among streetlights and unsuccessful neon."


August Kleinzahler's first collections won him a cult following but have long been out of print and hard to find. Here Kleinzahler--acclaimed by The Times (London) for the "vision and confident skill to make American poetry new"--has selected the best of the poems collected in Storm over Hackensack (1985) and Earthquake Weather (1989) and added an autobiographical Preface in Live from the Hong Kong Nile Club.
