Todd Boss (Author)

Overview | Formats

“Sure to be a classic, and the beginning of a long and glorious career.”—Sherman Alexie

Increasingly, Todd Boss has been attracting attention, with poems in the Paris Review and The New Yorker and a series in Poetry. His first collection, set in the Midwest, alternately features a childhood Wisconsin farm, the record-breaking storm that destroyed it, and the turbulent marriage that recalls it. Love and wonder mingle in these lines.
