In the lurid and ash-bound dreamscapes of Ian Felice’s The Moon Over Edgar, sleep conjures the dangerous and darling vertex of surprise. These linked sonnets chart the uncanny pursuits of an insurance salesman named Edgar, inviting us into realms of the strange—fairy tales, prophecies, premonitions—with a powerful sense of beauty and candor, ultimately delivering a fantastic and frightening world of infinite possibility. By the book’s end, we find ourselves in Edgar’s shoes, asking: “Well-dressed skeletons, spinning carelessly, / Transport me to that happy place.”

Praise for...

“I am not speaking of a friend. Although he is one. Ian Felice is the only songwriter I am and will ever be jealous of. Since encountering his music fifteen or so years ago he has changed my life and art in profound ways. Inspired is not the word. No justice in that. He has broken and mended my heart a thousand times over. There is not a lot left I believe in. Just deflated beach balls in the sand. But Ian's poetry hides me in a safehouse of understanding. He is a wellspring of what is the best of the human heart. Terrifying and life affirming in one miraculous mess. There is an active shooter. I am hiding under my desk but there is a rainbow outside the window. That’s Ian.” —Conor Oberst, of Bright Eyes
