Lauded poet Christopher Merrill hatched a brilliant plan: invite six other poets to join him in four days of writing in Iowa City.

A wonderful collection which shows you what seven talented poets can do when locked in a room to write. It's wonderful how the phrases appear and reappear in various poems, how they change and build on each other. Though it's tempting to linger over many of these dense gems, it makes a big difference to read straight through the sequence at least once first, to get the big picture.

Dean Young is a contemporary American poet in the poetic lineage of John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, and Kenneth Koch.

His most recent books are Elegy on Toy Piano ...more
