Steel Toe Books is pleased to announce the publication of Ken Waldman's fifth full-length poetry collection, Conditions and Cures. "Full of poems that stand alone as consummate achievements, Conditions and Cures nevertheless coheres as a book about life-and-death verities, strategies for survival or triumph or at least coping gracefully. The comic is one of those strategies, and Ken Waldman is often at his most hilarious when he's addressing subjects another poet might murder with solemnity."
