God's Laughter

Thomas Brush's new collection is about memory, aging, dive bars, love, and the struggle to keep nostalgia from turning life into an elegy for itself. As usual in his work, the poems contain a wild cast of characters, contexts, and paths, all of them presented in a language of great compression, directness, and honesty. He is a bard of the boomer generation that is beginning to leave us now. Thomas Brush is helping to remind the future, through his work, that they were here and what that was like.
