Maxine Kumin, former US laureate, & NH laureate, and author of Where I Live: New & Selected Poems 1990-2010, (WW Norton, 2011) recommends Walking the Dog's Shadow by Deborah Brown (BOA Editions, 2011).
"I recommend Walking the Dog's Shadow by Deborah Brown, with an intro by Tony Hoagland. I will quote him: This 'is a beautiful book, wise and sure of itself, fresh with wit and gravity, humane and true.'" --Maxine Kumin
This post is part of our celebration of National Poetry Month 2013 for which I asked New Hampshire poets and booksellers to recommend books of poetry by Granite State poets. These titles are generally available from local booksellers and may be held in public libraries as well.
