David Kirby’s New Poetry Collection Highlighted on NPR

Kirbyboulevard_2 LSU Press poet David Kirby’s new collection of poems, The House on Boulevard St. was featured May 8th on Nancy Pearl’s Under The Radar books segment during NPR’s Morning Edition. Pearl describes Kirby’s poetic style as "conversational, more or less stream of consciousness. . . . The poems, filled with specific details, invite readers into often complicated and convoluted stories, and you can never predict from the opening lines just where the poem is going to end up. For anyone who feels baffled and/or put off by poetry, Kirby’s the man to change your mind. " To read the entire review, click here.
