Ashbery's first new book since YOUR NAME HERE will delight old Ashbery fans and new students alike. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a founding influence on the New York School of poetry, Ashbery's writing is by turns playful, touching, and strange, frequently subverting its own apparent claims to sentiment. "After all regrets have been pocketed, the counter wiped clean / of terrible fingerprints, assuredly one moves westward / into sheepherding country" (from "Random Jottings of an Old Man"). AS UMBRELLAS FOLLOW RAIN is the first book by new SPD press QUA BOOKS, edited by Michael Gizzi and Craig Watson.
