The shrewd observer who sits two tables over at a coffeeshop is the guy we always fear in a crowd - the one who sees right into us. The shrewd observer of "Two Tables Over", as it turns out, is also a poet of the first rank, and with this new book of poetyr Nathan Brown has again moved to the fore of what is happening in contemporary poetry.
