Poetry. "More and more while judging this contest I found myself drawn to Martin Ott's CAPTIVE and compelled to read and re-read the pages. No explanatory notes, no stanza breaks to ease the way, no gimmicks or prettiness of form. Instead, consistently tough, unwavering poems displaying a wide knowledge of the world—its brutality and beauty—and a keen, appreciative eye on the hard-won pleasures of the personal and private. I encourage the reader to jump headfirst into these poems, to rise to their challenge, listen to their haunting truths, and celebrate their song."—Gaylord Brewer, De Novo Prize Judge

About the Author:

Martin Ott is a former U.S. Army interrogator who lives in Los Angeles where he writes poetry and fiction, often about his misunderstood city. He was born in Alaska, raised in Michigan, and loves to travel. He is coauthor, with John F. Buckley, of POETS' GUIDE TO AMERICA, a verse travelogue published in 2012 by Brooklyn Arts Press.

Review:

"Martin Ott's premiere collection is dark and dazzling. The speaker in Captive is like a captive himself, perhaps a former soldier or interrogator, held captive in memory, dreaming in feverish braids of time and place: the cold war, Irq, Moscow, Mexico, and some unnamed places - the kind where men arrive manacled and hooded. And yet light breaks through these pomes like an 'alchemy of daybreak.' Like a father walking with his infant daughter on his chest in a baby-pack, passing through a gauntlet of smiles and warm greetings."

- Richard Garcia, author of Rancho Notorious
