Description

Peter Johnson takes his place alongside today's most original prose poets Morton Marcus

A new collection of prose poems from the author of "Pretty Happy" and "Miracles and Mortifications," the latter of which won the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. This darkly comic book takes the reader on two separate but interrelated journeys. Eduardo is part alter ego and part cultural artifact, recalling Berryman's character Henry from the "Dream Songs."

Peter Johnson is the founding editor of the "Prose Poem: An International Journal" and teaches at Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island.
