2010 X.J. Kennedy poetry prize winner!



Texas Review Press, 2011

“Here is a poet with a real voice, brave and original. He also rhetorically asks questions that hurt. The Jack poems are a triumph, and the use of film imagery and Visa cards attests to his post-Modernism. This is a collection of friendship and vodka, and I can only say, Enjoy! “

----Robert Phillips, Series Judge
