THE COMPLETE BOOK OF KONG gathers the poetic wit, woe, and wisdom of both new and favorite Kong poems--from William Trowbridge's previous books, and from numerous literary magazines and anthologies--into a collection that will rattle your cage. This Kong is undiluted and indomitable, ready for anything from power lunches to paparazzi, from Manhattan to Mambo, from Godzilla to God. He is hip and horrendous, always terribly in love with a small screaming blonde, and still bearing the biggest, brightest heart Hollywood has ever broken. Kong treads fortissimo where mortals fear to go and holds forth in these poems with the fresh, no-nonsense voice that makes Trowbridge one of poetry's most cutting-edge bards. Come forth, ye canon weary. Behold your Inner Kong.
