Overview

Robert Cording, who selected Distant Fires for the 2019 Grayson Books Poetry Prize, writes this about the collection: “Distant Fires is a deeply moving book about the relationship between two brothers, one of whom was involved in the death of two women, was imprisoned, and died. The book reverberates with the voice of the dead brother, which the author must put into words, both to exorcise his guilt over not being able to help his brother and, more importantly, to give his dead brother, a confessed murderer, humanity and a human voice. The book succeeds in doing so artistically and with great passion.”
