This month’s featured poets: Dorianne Laux, The Book of Men (WW Norton) & Joseph Millar, Blue Rust (Carnegie Mellon Univ Press)
Dorianne Laux’s fifth collection of poetry, The Book of Men (W.W. Norton), “charge[s] through the summer of love into the present day, where she compassionately paints the smoky bars, graffiti, and addiction of urban life.” Winner of a 2006 Guggenheim fellowship, she teaches at NC State and in Pacific University’s low residency program.
In his newest poetry collection, Blue Rust (Carnegie-Mellon 2012), Joseph Millar “looks hard at a world that is doomed and beautiful.” He received a Guggenheim fellowship this year. He has worked at a variety of jobs, from telephone repairman to commercial fisherman, and now teaches in Pacific University’s low residency program.
