Small Talk gathers poems from Peter Sears's eight previous collections, and adds thirty entirely new poems. The many admirers of his poetry will be delighted to find so many old friends back in print and under a single cover. Eclectic, comic, disarming, deadly, and ever fresh and surprising, these poems offer a feast of necessary delights.
Peter Sears teaches in the MFA program at Pacific University and lives in Corvallis, Oregon.

"Peter Sears is an heir to Frank O'Hara and Kenneth Koch. These breezy, sometimes manic poems veer off in unexpected directions, a sensibility at once comic and disarmingly revealing."
-Dorianne Laux
