Great news! (Well, great news for me): The Poet Resigns has been picked as a notable book of the year by Alfred Corn on the Poetry Foundation's Harriet Blog. It's in good company, too, listed alongside books by Robert Pinsky, Marilyn Hacker, Richard Wilbur, and Don Share's wonderful edition of Basil Bunting's Persian translations.
The book, which deals with the conditions under which poetry is produced (among other things) is a bit big for a stocking stuffer, but don't let that deter you.
Much love to Alfred for noticing the book!
