Welcome to my blog. Each week I will be featuring a poet or poetry collection that I love.
I lived for many years in the San Francisco Bay Area and sometime ago came across the poetry of August Kleinzahler. A selection of his poetry appeared in 2017: Before Dawn on Bluff Road/Hollyhocks in the Fog: Selected New Jersey Poems/Selected San Francisco Poems.
Lots of great poems, like “Sunset in Chinatown” and “Indian Summer Night: The Haight” that bring back memories of the City. And the poems about New Jersey are great, too!
I have this collection, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, well as Sleeping It Off in Rapid City: New and Selected Poems, also published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009.
