My Shtetl by Robert Cooperman

My Shtetl by Robert Cooperman

March 24, 2010


Filed under Logan House, Poetry

Open to any poem in Robert Cooperman's My Shtetl and be so delighted you won't want to put the book down. Much more comes alive here than one man s childhood Brooklyn neighborhood, its Yiddish flavors, its tales of a family of American Jews who don t look, no different from real folks. He may have ...

Getting By by Gary Lark

Getting By by Gary Lark

October 1, 2009


Filed under Logan House, Poetry

These are poems of fierce candor and compassion. In blunt, plain-spoken language, they chronicle a life lived on the fringes: a rural Oregon boyhood and a working life spent variously as a laborer, a janitor, a hospital orderly, a National Guardsman, an outreach librarian . . . With precise detai...

Octopus by Tom C. Hunley

Octopus by Tom C. Hunley

September 1, 2008


Filed under Logan House, Poetry

I don't know if this book, Octopus, has eight arms but it has several: tender but completely unsentimental poems about children and marriage; angry poems and poems of deep gratitude; poems both comic and dark (often simultaneously); and maybe most of all a clear, original, passionate American voi...

Cut River by Amy McInnis

Cut River by Amy McInnis

February 1, 2007


Filed under Catalog, Logan House, Poetry

I get the same pleasure from reading Amy McInnis's Cut River that I do from looking at the intricate construction of a bird's nest, or in hearing a hidden vireo singing at the top of a tree; her poems have that same unerring now-ness and clarity. "The woods should have a different name at night, some...

Gutter Flowers by Don Welch

Gutter Flowers by Don Welch

August 1, 2005


Filed under Logan House, Poetry

Don Welch moves among the poor like a modern day Whitman who has mastered the fine art of pruning. The poor, he says, "need the dump and truck of love / to walk on too." With a minimum of words he evokes a maximum of feelings and sympathies. The rest of us need the poet's words to bring us those plac...

Frankenstein Was A Negro by Charles Fort

Frankenstein Was A Negro by Charles Fort

February 1, 2002


Filed under Catalog, Logan House, Poetry

Frankenstein Was A Negro is a lyrical psalm--it sings the blues and has the scat and soul of the Cotton Club. It's a testament to the true working class--hands tattered and torn; eye squinting bright. Reminiscent of Baudelaire, father of the prose poem, this collection mesmerizes and haunts and b...
