Today, Talk of the Nation features Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems by Billy Collins (Random, ISBN 978-1400064922). PW’s review said, “The 1990s belonged to Billy Collins in the same way that the 1980s belonged to Robert Fulghum (All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten). Collins's gently ironic, gently elegiac work—the mirror image of, say, Jonathan Franzen's suburban delvings—has slowly constructed a pitch-perfect purgatory, and this death-themed ninth collection seems to want to make it as literal as possible: it opens as the speaker stands ‘before the joined grave of my parents’ and asks, ‘What do you think of my new glasses?’ "
