Description


Ross’s poems are at once earthy and delicate and view their subjects through a perceptive, picaresque lens.

Praise For…


“. . . . Ross pitches nothing less than a stubborn belief in tenderness and in the patience both to look everywhere for it and to trustingly wait for it (‘I would learn rare // and love and want and wait. / I had to start at the beginning.’) This is a debut both tough and tender, the poems of a man who’s been made to look away from the world plenty, and has found a way to look steadily back.” —Carl Phillips, judge of the Four Way Books Levis Prize in Poetry
