Troy Jollimore, a philosophy prof at Chico State, won a National Book Critics Circle prize with his first poetry collection; his second, At Lake Scugog, is easily that good. In lush language draped over familiar forms, Jollimore explores the nature of the self, but don’t let that frighten you off. He’s got a great sense of humor and an equal fondness for a pun and a laugh, as in “Tom Thomson in Tune”: “no man’s an iPod.” Take that, John Donne!

It’s the ultimate introspection and upending of worldviews, as in “To His Lover”: “Heaven can go to hell, my sweet.
