Please join us in congratulating Cimarron contributor, Sean Sexton, whose collection of poems, May Darkness Restore, is now available from Press 53. Sidney Wade, author of Celestial Bodies, says, “this is a glorious book—Sean Sexton’s generous, unerring artist’s eye finds extraordinary beauty in the often difficult everyday facts in the life of a third-generation Florida cattle rancher. He glories in the magic and alchemy of language and turns words and phrases like ‘Rhizobium Leguminosarum’ and ‘raggedy-assed tractor’ into pure poetry. This book celebrates the beauties of generation, death, rebirth and love, and offers us all a share of truly redemptive grace.” Pick up your copy today.
Please join us in congratulating frequent contributor, Gary Fincke, whose recent books include, The Out-of-Sorts: New and Selected Stories (West Virginia University Press) and a collection of personal essays, The Darkness Call, winner of the Robert C. Jones Prize for Short Prose from Pleiades Press. In addition, The Infinity Room, winner of the Wheelbarrow Books/Michigan State Prize for Established Poets, will be published by Michigan State University Press in early 2019.
