To call a fire alive, to call a ghost awake…

Coming in April!My debut full-length, Punchline, a National Poetry Series finalist, is out now from Gold Wake Press.

If you’d like, order it from Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.  Or you can click that Buy Now button to the right to order a signed copy direct.

Here’s what Nicky Beer, author of The Diminishing House and co-editor of Copper Nickel, has to say about the book:

“By turns elliptical and aphoristic, macrocosmic and microcosmic, timeless and contemporary, Punchline is not a book of poems for those who merely want to be diverted or amused; this work is for readers who consider poetry the natural sibling of philosophy. Nick Courtright’s finely-distilled poems mine the frustrating unknowableness of the world, and celebrate its exhilarating mystery with elegance, compassion, and imagination.”

A while back, CultureMap interviewed me about the book, with shout-outs to parenthood, poetry’s not being for sissies, and the planet Jupiter.  To spy on some poem samples, visit here, here, here, or here.
