Item description for Farewell to the Starlight in Whiskey (American Poets Continuum) by Barton Sutter...
In Farewell to the Starlight in Whiskey, Barton Sutter explores the wilderness along the Canadian border, sings about love in midlife, meditates on the roots of war, attacks political leaders, recounts peculiar heroics of an epileptic Vietnam vet, writes a "personal" ad in the voice of a chickadee and talks to a dead jackpine. A deft practitioner of meter and rhyme, Sutter is a fireside storyteller who makes the language thump and sing.
Barton Sutter is the only author to win the Minnesota Book Award in three different categories, including poetry, for The Book of Names: New and Selected Poems (BOA). He teaches English and Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin, Superior. He lives in Duluth, MN.

Amazing Nov 10, 2005
Bart is just an amazing writer. If you don't normally read poetry, you will still like this. He's irreverant and hilarious. I was lucky enough to see him read his poetry as well. He is just amazing. Buy this book.
