Underground: New and Selected Poems

10/17/2014 - 7:00pm

Central Library - The Bubbler

Underground: New and Selected Poems is the long overdue career retrospective of Jim Moore, a poet of great depth and generosity who has steadily been building a devoted following over the course of three decades and seven books. This definitive volume gathers the best of his previous work as well as twenty new poems that showcase a poet whose work should appeal to fans of Mary Oliver and Billy Collins. In poems that are frank and accessible, Moore is a generous and keen observer of the world and people around him, one who, like the best of friends, is not afraid to risk sentimentality to get at deeper emotional truths that lie beneath the surface of daily life.
