[Lux is] sui generis, his own kind of poet, unlike any of the fashions of his time. Stanley Kunitz

A brilliant new collection of poems by Kingsley Tufts Award winning poet Thomas Lux

With To the Left of Time, Thomas Lux adds more than fifty poems to his celebrated oeuvre. Broken into three sections, these include semi-autobiographical poems, odes, and a final section that delves into a variety of subjects reflective of Lux s imaginative range. Full of his characteristic satire and humor, this new collection promises laughter and profound insight into the human condition.

To the Left of Time is a powerful addition to the work of a poet who has been widely praised for his ability to offer image- and metaphor-driven visions as well as lines of plain language and immediacy.This collection proves that Lux s work will continue to inspire readers for decades to come.

One of the few poets writing today who fills me with envy.
Billy Collins, New York Post

Try Lux on for size. He ll pinch in places, soothe in others, but I predict one thing: you may never fit the same way in your own skin again.
Rita Dove, Washington Post Book World

He is the Bourne Professor of Poetry and the director of the McEver Visiting Writers Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
