Poetry. Prize-winning fiction author Philip Deaver's poetry is praised as "snapshots of the legendary America of promise and disappointment. They are the poems of an equilibrist, a storyteller whose sense of poetry is a mixture of colloquial address, irony, and tenderness toward our losses and our loneliness" - Carol Frost.
