William Trowbridge wins a Pushcart Prize!
...for his poem "Roll Out the Fool," originally published in the journal POEMS & PLAYS, and now collected in his new collection, Ship of Fool. A most deserving winner; congratulations, Bill!
Ship of Fool is also recently the subject of some very nice reviews from Wisconsin Bookwatch and Tar River Poetry. Here's a brief excerpt from the latter, by Richard Simpson:
"Trowbridge has long since demonstrated in his eight books published since 1986 that he can transmute common American life and language to the highest pitch of art, his command of a vast range of tonal complexities always at work."
There's more, but you'll have to pick yourself up a copy of Tar River Poetry.
