The Drowning of the Saints

Paul Perry

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

This collection introduces a young writer with a distinctive new voice, full of verve and promise.

A past winner of the Hennessy New Writer of the Year Award, Paul Perry's collection is filled with sensual, lyrical, and beautifully crafted poems that are often infused with a dream-like magic and arouse a sense of longing, searching, and questioning. Whether it is a rumination on a gate to a farm, a painting by Breughel, the end of a love affair, or the armada's wreckage off the coast of Ireland, Perry infuses his work with a spiritual luminosity and a relentless search for meaning.

Paul Perry graduated from Brown University and was a James Michener Fellow of Creative Writing at the University of Miami and C. Glenn Cambor Fellow of Poetry at the University of Houston. His work was selected for The Best American Poetry 2000 collection. ""A remarkable triumph""-Fred D'Aguiar
