MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Terry Lucas's first full-length collection is In This Room. Alicia Suskin Ostriker said of his work, ""I imagine the ghosts of Hart Crane and Larry Levis welcoming Terry Lucas into their fraternity. With admiration and delight, I welcome this American life, this American voice." He won the 2014 Crab Orchard Review Special Issue Featured Poet Award and the 2012 Littoral Press Poetry Prize; his poems have garnered five Pushcart Prize nominations. His work has been published in journals including Best New Poets 2012, Green Mountains Review, Great River Review, Grain Magazine, Columbia Poetry Review, Fifth Wednesday Journal, Naugatuck River Review, MiPoesias, New Millennium Writings, and The Comstock Review. His chapbook, If They Have Ears To Hear, won the Copperdome Chapbook Contest.
Campbell McGrath's new book of poems is XX: Poems for the Twentieth Century. David Biespiel wrote, "McGrath has already developed a signature style that is brutally expansive, slangy, and rife with high- and low-toned jargon. His 'promethean eruptions' are at once explosive, swaggering, opportunistic and flip.…A brilliant bubbling forth of a comic and serious intelligence." The book is comprised of a hundred poems, one for each year, studded with cultural icons, writers, artists, leaders, chronicling and probing the turbulence and profundities of the century that was. He is the author of nine previous collections; his writing has been published in the New York Times, Harper's Magazine, The New Yorker, and many other journals, and among his honors are a Guggenheim Fellowship and a MacArthur Foundation 'genius grant'.
