Poetry. "Douglas Goetsch is, without a doubt, an unbridled creative talent.

I met Doug at the North Wildwood Beach Writers' Conference in June 2013, where we were both teaching. I was blown away by his faculty night reading, and then by his class on "Opening Claims." I think you'll feel the same way about the marvelous work in this collection. It's muscular and lyrical at the same time, and just pulls you in and won't let you go. My personal favorite was the title poem, as I tend to have the same job!
