9781929918577: Farewell to the Starlight in Whiskey (American Poets Continuum)

In Farewell to the Starlight in Whiskey, Barton Sutter explores the wilderness along the Canadian border, sings about love in midlife, meditates on the roots of war, attacks political leaders, recounts peculiar heroics of an epileptic Vietnam vet, writes a “personal” ad in the voice of a chickadee and talks to a dead jackpine. A deft practitioner of meter and rhyme, Sutter is a fireside storyteller who makes the language thump and sing.

Barton Sutter is the only author to win the Minnesota Book Award in three different categories, including poetry, for The Book of Names: New and Selected Poems (BOA). He teaches English and Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin, Superior. He lives in Duluth, MN.
