A brilliant expression of philosophy and feeling, Christopher Buckley's latest poetry collection explores growing up in the America of the fifties and sixties and coming to terms with the aging process. In dazzling language, Star Apocrypha bears the beauty and weight of the big questions. The poet looks to nature--the interior and exterior landscapes--for his answers and with wit and high-pitched intelligence accepts his art and life in the twenty-first century.

"Some poets like only celestial music, others the grit of the streets, but Buckley engages winningly with both." --San Francisco Chronicle
"Here is humor, but also a quietness that stills the heart." --Gary Soto, Ploughshares
