The poems in The Unseen World wander just below the surface under water and under the moon, beneath fields and cities, love and family. They bump into dead Spanish poets in bus station gift shops, take coffee with Soren Kierkegaard at IKEA and spot Henry Miller emerging from 14th Street subway. Cameo appearances include two bullfighters, a bear out shopping a pair of pants, a dental assistant’s ovaries and a voting pig named Victoria. All the while the action is being filmed by Robert Frank from his perch in Cape Breton to a sound track of the distant barking of dogs.

David Elkins is a poet and short-story writer. His work includes A Bulldog's Guide to Small Engine Repair and Relative Exposures: Felling the Family Tree (co-written with Torben Schioler). Poems have appeared in Harper’s Magazine, Panorama, Our Times, Now and others. He is the recipient of International CKG Award for Poetry and has been selected as a finalist for QWF’s A. M. Klein Award
