In this, Robert Hershon’s fourteenth book of poems, he returns to the movie palaces of his youth and enjoys the guilty pleasure of sneaking into an afternoon movie as an adult. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Hershon is co-editor of Hanging Loose Press and Hanging Loose magazine.

Of Freeze Frame, David Lehman writes,

This is your invitation to watch the procession of Hollywood greats—Bogart, the Marx Brothers, Myrna Loy, Rosemary Clooney, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, King Kong—with a wise and witty observer in a movie palace that has clouds in the ceiling and stars on the silver screen.
