D.G. Jones

Hot off the press and nearly two years late. The Stream Exposed with All its Stones, the D.G. Jones Collected, turned out to be an insane amount of work to assemble, edit and proof.

But it’s finally here, and it’s glorious. For $18.95 you get all nine of Jones’ major collections—from his debut Frost on the Sun (1957) to the most recent, Grounding Sight (1999). You also get a 4000-word essay by W.J. Keith that explains Jones’ development from the early “perfection of the well-wrought urn” to the later aesthetic that “embraced the daunting but exciting diversity of chaos.” You also get more good poems that you can shake a stick at.

If you’re a blogger, reviewer or small magazine editor and want a review copy, please get in touch.
