About this book

Nice Weather

Frederick Seidel

"Something is going on. Something is wrong."

Frederick Seidel — the "ghoul" (Chicago Review), the "triumphant outsider" (Contemporary Poetry Review) — returns with a dangerous new collection of poems. Nice Weather presents the sexual and political themes that have long preoccupied Seidel — and thrilled and offended his readers. Lyrical, grotesque, elegiac, this book adds new music and menace to his masterful body of work.
