Midge Goldberg reviews The Frangible Hour

I woke up this morning and, as usual, logged in to Facebook.What a wonderful surprise to read that Midge Goldberg had written a review of The Frangible Hour, "Tar & Tallow, Turpentine & Twine" and that it has been published in The Claremont Review of Books, digital edition, February 12, 2018.

You can read the review HERE & HERE.

The review is also announced by Micah Mattix in today's Prufrock HERE.

Thank you so much, Midge!

Good News!

New Year's celebration, Punta del Este, Uruguay

I've just heard from William Baer that my sonnet, "Celebration," which portrays my feeling of alienation at the New Year's  celebrations in Punta del Este, has been chosen as one of twelve finalists for this year's Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award.

It will be published in an upcoming issue of Measure.

Thank you, Bill, Rob and Paul!
