The Marksman

Jeff Friedman's eighth collection of poetry, The Marksman, blends surrealism, dark comedy, fable, hyperbole, history, and reinvented myth to explore the question of what it means to survive and live in our troubled times. This is a book of migrations and transformations, of wrenching displacement and redemption. Through its imaginative reach, wild humor, and dazzling clarity of language, The Marksman centers its aim on the broken dreams of our lives, and the tough love that will redeem us.
