About the Author
Praise For It Starts from the Belly and Blooms…
"Thomas Fucaloro is here and he is showing you his big messy heart. (Actually, if you’re looking for other body parts, you’ll find most of them in this book.) Love is a napkin,” he says, and I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s going to take. His poems are angry and emotional and irrational / just like the cops”but in the end, like the rest of us, the guy’s just trying to get some napkin. Let’s give him some napkin."
Mark Bibbins, winner of Lambda Literary Award, Sky Lounge
"It Starts from the Belly and Blooms dives facefirst into the glory and wildness of life, combining fearless authenticity, humor, and a gut-punching ear for images. All the reader can do is hope that Fucaloro be accorded what he deserves: a lasting mark on the face of American poetics."
