About This Book
"Uncomfortable minds" is Larry's Sorkin's riff on poet e.e. cummings ' words, "Cambridge ladies who...are unbeautiful and have comfortable mind" which refer to the conceit that uncomfortable minds are universal to all human beings. Larry Sorkin's collection of poems—sometimes joyful, sometimes elegiac—explore the idea of the restless, uncomfortable state as either something we can run from, try to fix, or embrace. Each poem in the collection explores some disturbance in the psyche, with poetry as a way to confront the disturbance, use it, embrace it.
