My first book of poetry Sep 26, 2007
The latest Beloit College alumni magazine came with class news that included the publication of this book. I knew the author so I decided to purchase this as my first book of poetry. It has been riveting.
I particularly like what he does with rhyme, and also appreciate the fact that the poems are not self-absorbed despite the fact that they are presumably about his life and experiences. The poems are so smooth and seem so effortlessly written.
Lyrical and smart - 2007 Tufts Discovery Award Winner! Sep 19, 2006
McHenry's deft work instantly transports the reader to places and emotions that have the familiarity of a loved one's face, and the sweetness of home.
As with all good poems, reading these is a way of connecting to the world in the moment, a way of taking in the beautiful things that are here, now, in each day.
