Poetry. "This is a badass book of poems and you will suffer if you don't find your way into its pages."—Anselm Berrigan"It doesn't get any better."—Robert Creeley
Bob Hershon was one of four co-founders of Hanging Loose in 1966; he remained active with the press until his death in 2021. A widely published poet himself and a native Brooklynite, he was part of New York City's poetry scene for more than a half-century.
He also maintained a close connection with the New York art world, counting many painters among his friends. He brought his passion for the visual arts to Hanging Loose magazine-or perhaps he brought the magazine to the visual arts. Each issue presents a portfolio of paintings and cover art by one artist.
