Early/Late: New and Selected Poems draws from Philip Fried's previous four collections of poetry. These highly praised books explored such themes as the tribulations of a vulnerable deity and the intersection of personal myth and historical moment. The new poems, in a section titled ""The Emanation Crunch,"" are haunted by the current financial turmoil and possessed by the disembodied voices that multiply in our world of simulacra. ""This skillful and memorable first selection can seem like the work of three or four different poets, thought wit and civility hold it together.""-Publishers Weekly

Big Men Speaking to Little Men (2006), making up most of the last half of this collection, casts aside divinity for carefully ironized versions of family history: nostalgic at times, more outwardly conventional, these pages may nonetheless hold his strongest work.
