Laureates and Heretics

Laureates and Heretics, my new book of literary criticism, is officially out and order-able on

Here's the publisher's page for it, and here's the Amazon page. And here are a few kind words from the back jacket, by the inimitable and redoubtable Mark Scroggins:

The varying critical and public fates of Winters and the poets who worked under him make a fascinating study, even gesturing towards a global history of postwar American poetry.

It makes a great gift, doubles as a coaster on which to rest your martini, and (if you teach at a college or university) belongs in your library. If you want to write a review, get in touch with me at my Lake Forest College email address.
