About the Author
Praise For Angel Interrupted (Pitt Poetry Series)…
"This is a book of unabashed lyricism and in-your-face contemporaneity, bristling with intelligence, challenging the reader to envision at once the panhandlers of Chicago and the princess of Troy, the iconic beauty of Narcissus of Antinous superimposed upon numinous black and white American bodies in a warily passionate embrace."
"Angel Interrupted is written on water. Fluid, bright, and moving, fully aware of the fleeting beauty of the things of this world, these poems catch the light between lyric and myth."
"There is such an exuberant sadness to this collection that no one will escape it unchanged. Reginald Shepherd's instructions to us are simple: 'Read this and tell me what it says.'"
