The 2010 National Book Award and NYU professor has compiled a series of sonnets that explore " the meanings of American, of an assassin, and of love in the sonnet form," according to Goddreads.com "Written during the first two hundred days of the Trump presidency, these poems are haunted by the country's past and future eras and errors, its dreams and nightmares."
