"In Robert Deluty’s sparkling new collection of short poems, the designer Charles Eames is quoted as saying, 'The details are not the details. They make the design.' Deluty’s poems show us how the hidden design of our lives is revealed in seemingly minor but crucially important 'details'; thus, we have the 'poor elder/ telling his grandkids to sing/ when they’re hungry'; and 'the homophobe/ disliking the term/ gentleman.' With his trademark wordplay and puckish humor, Deluty makes visible human mysteries that remain invisible to less astute observers."
Dr. Robert Deluty, associate dean emeritus of the Graduate School, has published his 55th book, "Mysteries, Visible and Invisible." In his review, Dr. Ronald Pies writes,
"Mysteries, Visible and Invisible," as well as all of Dr. Deluty's other books, are on sale at the campus bookstore.
