“Bilgere’s impact sneaks up on you. Like his cold living room, his syntax and diction are everyday, but he uses that to his strength, carefully gaining your trust before pushing you off the cliff. His style, combined with deft handling of the line, sets booby traps of meaning for the reader.”—Matt Conover, Gadfly Online

The fifth collection of poetry by George Bilgere.

Bilgere has published six collections of poetry. His fifth collection "The White Museum" uses humor and thoughtfulness to portray modern American life and language.
