About Honey And Smoke:

"In the exquisite Honey & Smoke, Sean Singer makes poetry inside of histories, like those bees who build honeycombs in the skull of a lion. Boundaries in this Wunderkammer Commedia shift and thrill as readers encounter Freud, Hedy Lamar, Larry Fine, Italo Svevo, Coppola's The Conversation, Newark's difficult history, jazz, and so much more. What a fitting title: the book's smoky articulations fill the air as sweet architecture, as elegant shapes, piercing and blazing."
—Amy Newman
