You can't help but being swept into the flood."—Dennis Schmitz"Christopher Buckley's gift for wide-ranging thinking meshes so gracefully with lovingly tender details; he feels like a companion voice for all time—a Hikmet, a Neruda, yes."—Naomi Shihab NyeChristopher Buckley's past publications have won numerous awards, and his poems have been included in many anthologies and journals. Star Journal: Selected Poems was published in 2016 as part of the Pitt Poetry Series.
