His most recent collection, Lighthead, explores the construction of experience both through personal insight and political condition. Hayes utilizes popular and high culture within the last few decades to influence his unique inquiry and revelation about the world in which we live. In a review, the New York Times wrote “Hayes’s fourth book puts invincibly restless wordplay at the service of strong emotions.”
