“Robert Booras’ clear, open, soulful poems in The New Night of Always handle time with dream-infused immediacy and a kind of slantwise humor built from the politics of grace that is domestic and artistic life in the thick of the big city. They subtly, if insistently, take company as a central need of one’s life, with all the attendant desires and anxieties that sense of need daily conjures, and go at its many angles with shapely precision. It’s the kind of work that serves a range of mind frames, making for a book you can carry around and read all over town.”
Robert Booras received a BA from the University of Michigan and a MFA from Brooklyn College. He created and edited thirteen issues of SPAWN (Sunset Park Art & Writing Newsletter) before cofounding UpSet Press with Zohra Saed. This is his first book of poems.
