National Book Award winner Paul Monette’s acclaimed first book of poetry

Originally published in 1975, The Carpenter at the Asylum was Monette’s first literary success. In this collection of poems, he writes with playfulness and candor of everything from fairy tales to the change of seasons. “All things glitter like fresh milk,” he writes in one poem. And indeed, these works pull a sparklingly strange beauty from everyday objects and experiences.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Paul Monette including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the Paul Monette papers of the UCLA Library Special Collections.
