go buy this, part 2...

William Taylor Jr. has an unbelievable book out by the good folks at Centennial Press called Words For Songs Never Written: New & Selected Poems. Bill is without a doubt one of the best writers in any sphere; his spare, tragic and beautiful poems speak with a unique voice, part confessional and part imagistic, creating moving snapshots of the human experience that sing with a hopeful melancholy and a determined endurance. Bill's work always gets many votes over at the GPP, and several of his poems can be found on GPP Broadsides. I highly advise anyone who cares about powerful literature presented by a press that truly cares about its output, from font to finish, to pick up a copy of this sure-to-be classic. I am.
