From the Back Cover:

Richard Carr is a genius of poetry.  Unknown--until now--he has been writing at white heat, producing five books in the past four years, three of which won prizes in 2007: Mister Martini, the Vassar Miller Prize; Honey, the Gival Press Poetry Award; and Ace, the Washington Prize.  All three characters--Mister Martini, Honey, and Ace--originate here in Street Portraits, among the heartbreaking portrayals of  "all the monochrome denizens of the / neon honking steaming street."  --Barbara Louise Ungar, author of The Origin of the Milky Way and Charlotte Brontë, You Ruined My Life

I thought I was writing the best poetry in America, until I read Richard Carr.  --Stuart Bartow, author of White Ravens and Reasons to Hate the Sky

Writing with unsentimental intensity, Carr inhabits the impulses and yearnings of the human heart.  These exquisitely rendered poems are astonishing for their range and tone.  --David Hassler, author of Red Kimono, Yellow Barn

About the Author:

RICHARD CARR's poetry and reviews have appeared in Poetry East, Exquisite Corpse, New Letters, Painted Bride Quarterly and many other journals. His chapbooks are Butterfly and Nothingness (a hypertext published by Mudlark) and Letters from North Prospect (winner of the Frank Cat Press Poetry Chapbook Award). His full-length poetry collections are Mister Martini (University of North Texas Press), Street Portraits (Backwaters Press), Honey (Gival Press), Ace (Word Works Books), One Sleeve (Evening Street Press), Imperfect Prayers (Steel Toe Books), and Dead Wendy (FutureCycle Press). His honors include the Washington Prize for Ace, the Gival Press Poetry Award for Honey, and the Vassar Miller Prize for Mister Martini.

Besides "serious" employment as a systems analyst, web designer, tavern manager, and college teacher, Richard has held an assortment of jobs in restaurants, big box and small town hardware stores, book and newspaper print shops, and on farms, as well as house painting, cabinet making, ice rink grooming, and, one summer, filling sunken graves in a cemetery. As a teenager, he wanted to be a concert pianist. His cat's name is "Fur" Elise, and his goldfish are called Aria and Goldberg. In college, he majored in philosophy. At one time, he could recite a hundred digits of pi. He once hitchhiked to California. His car is a Jaguar XJ8. He's been in three motorcycle crashes. None fatal.
