If cows could talk, what would they say? The Golden Book of Bovinities represents the collective wisdom of centuries of bovine self-awareness. On its surface, Robert Moore's fourth collection is a running ledger ofaphorisms, maxims and injunctions that lay bare the mystery behind those docile cud-chewers. Deeper down, however, the book is an indictment against the inhuman cruelty we inflict on each other as well as on the non-human world. A tour de force allegory about our post-9/11 world, The Golden Book of Bovinites contains some of the freshest, funniest, most startling poetry you will ever read. (From Signal Editions)
