Poetry. Prose. "Poetry loves prose and makes brilliant babies with paragraphs and sentences. TOUCH OF THE WHIP is a trans-genre pleasure, infinitely sage and sane. Warsh's narrative always speaks to itself from a lyric threshold. A postmodern Delmore Schwartz - yearning, mordant, supenseful" - Gloria Frym. "Lewis Warch is at once psychological realist and idealist of love. This is writing from a life in all its mysterious richness" - Gary Lenhart.
Lewis Warsh is the author of over thirty volumes of poetry, fiction and autobiography, including OUT OF THE QUESTION: SELECTED POEMS (1963-2003) (Station Hill Press of Barrytown), ALIEN ABDUCTION (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2015), ONE FOOT OUT THE DOOR: COLLECTED STORIES (Spuyten Duyvil, 2014), A PLACE IN THE SUN (Spuyten Duyvil, 2014) and INSEPARABLE: POEMS 1995-2005 (Granary Books, 2008).
