For readers new to the work of Patrick Hicks, Library of the Mind is a phenomenal primer on his singular voice and vision. For long-time fans like myself, this collection offers one poet's life-long meditation and interior monologue with the world-along with new poems that gesture toward the restless and loved world into which Hicks continues to write his way. This is a poet with a wide angle of vision, one that travels experiential time zones with grace and ease, exploring the interconnected nature of the past, present, and yet-to-be-Brian Turner Patrick Hicks' poetry has appeared on NPR, The PBS NewsHour, and American Life in Poetry. He also wrote the novel "The Commandant of Lubizec." He has twice been a finalist for an Emmy and he has received grants and fellowships from the Bush Artist Foundation, the Loft Literary Center, and the NEH. He is the Writer-in-Residence at Augustana University and a faculty member at the MFA program at Sierra Nevada College.
