The Poetry of Jason Roush
(Photo by Jason Roush, 1997)
"Fasten your seatbelt.
, at the wheel of a 2004 Constellation, is about to take you there.
not at all like Rilke, but he's
writing on a very light edge that kind of twinkles-nearly sad about being alive, yet consumed with taking a picture."
-Eileen Myles, author of Sorry, Tree
"Meticulous, candid, poised, this outstanding first book has the passion and cool of art.
is a striking, genuine new talent, and After Hours is a wonderful read."
-Robert Pinsky, author of Gulf Music
