Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems

Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems - Billy Collins Of all the poetry books I own, this is my favorite. Billy Collins is such a masterful poet. He brings both poignancy and humor to his poems. I was able to go to a reading of his a few years ago and was completely blown away. Collins is a brilliant poet and this volume is a brilliant selection of his writing. If I were stranded on a desert island this is one of the books I would want to have with me.
