Poetry. Composed during long walks throughout Washington, DC, and careful to err on the side of recklessness, ROUGH DAY finds its essential unity in a fixation on American events and landscapes—from Yellowstone and New Orleans to Kansas and the Pacific Northwest. Throughout, Ed Skoog maintains an openness to discovery that unveils rare and prismatic views into his country.
A native of Topeka, Kansas, Ed Skoog's first book of poetry, MISTER SKYLIGHT (Copper Canyon Press), was published in 2009. His poetry has appeared in Poetry, American Poetry Review, and The Paris Review. He teaches at the University of Montana and lives in Missoula, Montana.Author City: MISSOULA, MT USA
