Curtis L. Crisler’s new book, “This” Ameri-Can-ah (Cherry Castle Publishing, 2016) “out-schools every school of American poetry.” That’s according to Jericho Brown, American Book Award Winner.
Indiana’s Poet Laureate George Kalamaras called Crisler “…the bone man, the heart man, the roaming coyote-man howling from the breath’s bowels.”
And the praises don’t stop there.
“Curtis L. Crisler has a humorist’s knack for off-kilter Rockwellian portraiture,” noted Douglas Kearney, National Poetry Series Award Winner.
By now, it’s obvious Crisler’s new collection is a knock out among these rising literary heavyweights. “This” Ameri-Can-ah launched yesterday.
