About this title


Gritty poems about street characters by this award-winning rising star of poetry.

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
