This is the first new collection of poems from D. J. Enright since Instant Chronicles in 1985.Peering into the nooks and crannies of circumstance, the poet and proser take notice of domestic affairs and foreign exchanges, divine mistakes and human embarrassments, quirks and quiddities, accidents and designs, fashions and fantasies, double lives and single deaths, the dust-heap of history,and the devil walking up and down.As entertaining and disturbing as ever, D. J. Enright continues to comment with sympathy and irony on humanity.
