About the Book

In Life Outside the Set, Michael Diebert weaves together frayed threads in the tapestry of human experience. Rooted in memory and mind, these poems illustrate frustration with being caught between the Scylla of the hazy wished-for and the Charybdis of the ad-libbed actual, but they also insist on the beautiful and wondrous as, in Robert Frost’s words, a “momentary stay against confusion.” From a variety of viewpoints, with equal doses of puzzlement, wryness, and exhortation, this debut collection re-advances the possibility that beyond the ground-bound and temporary, there might be something better.
