Insomniac Liar of Topo, The
Norman Dubie

The poems in Norman Dubie's The Insomniac Liar of Topo behave much like a linear particle accelerator: they explode worlds into each other with tremendous speed, in order to discover the worlds within. Populated by a menagerie of mystics, holy men, and artists, Dubie's poems bring together the astonishingly grotesque and sardonically beautiful, to call forth the sincere within the context of war and human dissonance.

For Insomniac Liar of Topo, The, Norman Dubie

"Dubie has already been recognized as one of the most powerful and influential American poets… his poems have always been generous and inclusive, capable of containing multiple and conflicting worlds—of memory and the present, of the artistic and the daily."—Washington Post Book World

"Dubie has a singular talent for inhabiting a persona and making convincing representations of another person's life, taking on a different view and experience of the world… It is the tenderness of his identifications that make Dubie's work so extraordinary."—Boston Review
