Thomas Brush’s new collection is about memory, aging, dive bars, love, and the struggle to keep nostalgia from turning life into an elegy for itself. As usual in his work, the poems contain a wild cast of characters, contexts, and paths, all of them presented in a language of great compression, directness, and honesty. He is a bard of the boomer generation that is beginning to leave us now. Thomas Brush is helping to remind the future, through his work, that they were here and what that was like.

THOMAS BRUSH‘s poems have appeared in Poetry, Poetry Northwest, Prairie Schooner, the Iowa Review, Crazyhorse, North American Review, Shenandoah, and many other journals and anthologies. He has been awarded fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Washington Artist Trust, and the Washington State Arts Commission. His collection, Last Night, was winner of the Blue Lynx Prize for Poetry. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
