Poetry. An editor at Hanging Loose Press, GHOST RADIO is Dick Lourie seventh collection of poetry and perhaps his most successful, deftly bringing forth issues of race and music in a disarming and forthright style. Lourie is an accomplished musician playing tenor sax and trumpet for a variety of bands, and GHOST RADIO is as lively as the music he plays. Lourie's poetry has also appeared in a variety of magazines including Verse, Exquisite Corpse, The Massachusetts Review, ACM, Sun, and Ms. Magazine. "Dick Lourie's work has never failed to give me a keen sense of his integrity and individuality"—Denise Levertov.
