Author: Robert Cooperman

Born and raised on the not-so-mean streets of Brooklyn, Robert Cooperman now calls Denver home, where he has turned his love of the Old West into a cottage industry of poetry collections about the Colorado Territory and other aspects of frontier life. THE DEVIL WHO RAISED ME (Lithic Press, 2019) is Robert Cooperman's twentieth collection and tells of how a nice kid turned into a stone killer. Cooperman's other recent poetry collections are That Summer (Main Street Rag Publishing Company, 2019) and Their Wars (Kelsay Books, 2018). Cooperman's chapbook/love letter to the Grateful Dead, Saved by the Dead, was published by Liquid Light Press in 2018. Closer to Cooperman's Brooklyn origins, My Shtetl (2010) won the Holland Award from Logan House Press. His book In the Colorado Gold Fever Mountains (Western Reflections, 1999) won the Colorado Book Award for Poetry.
