Poetry. "The Art lies in hiding the art, Horace teaches us, and B.H. Boston is a master of such concealment in poems that are spare and tight, that speak to us without patronizing of things that matter most in this life. I love the delicacy, tenderness and intimacy of pieces such as "I am Reading," the faith and incantation of poems like "Processional," and the mystical realism of "Apiary." This book is about remembering and paying attention and healing and praising. Ultimately, it is about the human spirit--and it soars"--Ilya Kaminsky.
B.H. Boston received his BA in English from Cal State University, Fresno, and his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of California at Irvine.
