About this title


Poetry. "Wally Swist's poems are lean and clean to the bone. Meditations on nature, love, sanity and evil are limned with grace and clarity. Finally, though, this book is a celebration, the way one man coming face to face with a fox is a kind of celebration"-James Tate. Wally Swist was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1953. His essays, poems, and reviews have appeared in The American Book Review, The Anthology of Magazine Verse and Yearbook of American Poetry, Poetry East, The Small Press Review, and Yankee. He has published several chapbooks of his work and is the recipient of a grant from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts. "To read a Wally Swist poem is to see a piece of the world in a special way. A whole book of such poems is a blessing"-Gary Metras.
