Item description for Devoted Creatures by Bill Van Every...
Selected by Thomas Lux as the Tupelo Press Judge's Prize Winner in 2002, this marvelous first book is fueled by Bill Van Every's spontaneity and his cohesive, intimate, emotional voice. This is a remarkable young poet who delicately filets his verse to the barest bones, seducing the reader with a lyric facade of simplicity and humor while artfully revealing a deep emotional resonance. This book of verse is, quite simply, wonderful and essential.
Bill Van Every was a finalist for the Breadloaf/Bakeless Literary Prize and the Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize, and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. His poetry has been published in The Asheville Review, The Colorado Review, Interim, The Sow's Ear, and more. Bill currently lives with his wife and daughter in North Carolina.
