After several years of illness, in 2011 Dean Young underwent a heart transplant, shortly after the publication of his fourteenth book.

In Shock by Shock, his first collection of new poems since then, Young moves into an invigorating poetic territory, deftly folding the joy of renewed life into his signature mixture of surrealism, humor, blunt insight, and fast-cut imagery.

NPR said it well when they observed that Pulitzer finalist Young sees “even in the smallest things the heights of what we can be.”
