Dale Jacobson reviews Marked Men in Rain Taxi. It’s humbling when a poet one admires finds good things to say about one’s own work.
I should add that Dale’s editorial efforts were critical to the production of a literary landmark, Copper Canyon’s complete Letter to an Imaginary Friend (Parts I-IV), by Thomas McGrath. Reading McGrath and Jacobson together is like throwing open the window of a room too long closed up. A fresh wind rushes in, and our stuffy notions of what poetry can be are swept away.
