Approaching the Center
Winner of the Oakland/Josephine Miles Award
In this beautifully wrought first book, Myronn Hardy writes poems that explore the connection between places, examine where things lie. The poet travels to countries such as Spain, Brazil, South Africa, Cuba, and always manages to enter into discourse with both citizen and place. He gets inside, is inhabited himself, while he recovers kinship to a multifarious planet. Hardy is both traveler and witness, and Approaching the Center promises much more to come from this brilliant new writer.
