by | Read by Billy Collins, Bill Murray

Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

Recorded as a benefit at New York's Symphony Space (home of Public Radio's "Selected Shorts"), BILLY COLLINS LIVE is a boon for fans who have never heard the poet live. Collins, a former U.S. Poet Laureate, is a sly, assured reader of his own work. He shares poems from several collections, including QUESTIONS ABOUT ANGELS, PICNIC, LIGHTNING, and NINE HORSES--poems of the everyday that are funny and accessible even as they're marvels of language and description. There's a brief Q&A with the audience at the end that will, if nothing else, give listeners further insight into Collins's sense of humor. A must-have for poetry lovers, and Collins fans in particular. J.M.D. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
