Mayapple Press, 2007 - Poetry - 73 pages
Poetry. Chris Green is a wonderful poet of contemporary American life. Compassionate, candid, funny and smart, these poems explore things we know but are often unable to say about our everyday lives. Green's debt to other writers is a source of richness but never pedantry. Encountering other poets, books, animals, marriage, family, even the suburban strip mall--the experiences created by these poems are sources of surprise, light and shadow. Chris Green's poems have appeared in Poetry, Verse, North American Review, RATTLE, 5 AM, Poet Lore, Poetry East and other publications. He lives in Evanston, Illinois, where he teaches writing at Loyola University and DePaul University. He is also a Visiting Fellow at the DePaul University Humanities Center.
