"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Monday Must Read! Ace Boggess: The Prisoners

 

boggess-photoThis week meet Ace Boggess, the author of two books of poetry: The Prisoners (Brick Road Poetry Press, 2014) and The Beautiful Girl Whose Wish Was Not Fulfilled (Highwire Press, 2003). His novel, A Song Without a Melody, is forthcoming from Hyperborea Publishing. His writing has appeared in Harvard Review, Mid-American Review, RATTLE, River Styx, North Dakota Quarterly and many other journals. He lives in Charleston, West Virginia.

(I first read Ace’s poetry years ago when I was editing The Dos Passos Review and loved it, the boldness, the elegance, the careful heartbreaking balance between humor and humanity. Good good stuff, y’all.)
