***An SPD Monthly Top 30 Poetry Title***

The Man Suit, a darkly comic debut from poet Zachary Schomburg, assembles a macabre cast of doppelgangers, talking animals and dead presidents in poems that explore concepts of identity, truth and fate. The resulting body of work walks a dynamic line—often reading like anecdotal fables or cautionary tales in the form of prose poems. Through it all, Schomburg balances irony with sincerity; wit with candor; and a playful tone with the knowledge of inevitable sorrow.

"Zachary Schomburg is a wildly imaginative poet who will take you many places you’ve never been or even dreamed of, always with grace and quirky humor. Whether you are caught in Abraham Lincoln’s Death Scene or the Sea of Japan, you are certain to enjoy the original vision of this highly entertaining poet. It’s a book like no other."—James Tate
