Read my review of Joseph Amato’s “Buoyancies” in the Rain Taxi Review

Rain Taxi Volume 19 Number 4 Winter 2014

The Rain Taxi Review of Books, Vol. 19, No. 4. Winter 2014.

I’m happy to announce that my review of Joseph A. Amato’s Buoyancies: A Ballast Master’s Log (Crossings & Spoon River Poetry Press, 2014) appears in the latest print edition of The Rain Taxi Review of Books. Don’t worry: My article’s short. (Plus, if you get bored of my writing, you can literally turn the page and read an interview with Beat poet Diane di Prima).

An excerpt:

It is about time Joseph A. Amato wrote a book of poetry. At the age of seventy-six, the Southwest Minnesota State University professor emeritus is the author of twenty-six books of nonfiction, ranging from family history to culture studies of walking, dust, and surfaces. Though a resume one would not expect from a new poet, it is his affinity for the unexpected that marks his charm as a writer. …

You can find a few of Amato’s poems on his website here.
