About the Author

Endorsements

"Veinberg gives himself over to his subjects completely. His voice is at once replete with experiential detail and with imaginative and brilliant image making. Every Veinberg poem has a forceful rhythm, a syntax that sings just above the edge of the vernacular. His cast of characters populate the poor side of town and he is their voice, their witness—a larger conscience for us all. Few poets have his grit, empathy, invention, and original vision."—Christopher Buckley

"His poems have a strong sense of conflict and drama. They try to tell the truth about ordinary people—they also grant those people their individuality and dignity."—Edward Hirsch
