Tomas Morin's poems are as infectious and spooky and darkly humorous as the Brothers Grimm, as shapely and colloquial and eloquent as John Donne, and as skeptical and addicted to history-as-fable as Z... bigniew Herbert. --Tom Sleigh, from the introduction An energetic and moving book of fantasias and elegies. --Edward Hirsch Selected from over one thousand manuscripts for the APR/Honickman First Book Prize, Tomas Q. Morin's debut is rich with the mastery of Morin's lush storytelling. From war-torn images of Eastern Europe in the mid-1900s to modern-day glimpses of the American southwest, these poems are bold and brightly imagined. From Castrato : What do you call a gifted soprano with no balls who is too ugly to play the heroine, is never tall enough for the role of the hero? Wait a quarter century and you can fast forward past the floggings, the endless sermons, the giggles under alders with curious girls, busted noses, carped sisters with chubby boys, the innumerable nights of sleeplessness. Better to skip all this unpleasantness and descend the last rise toward the coast where you can stroll the docks in the short light of winter, get lost in the cloudbank, let the sea ripen in your hair, scan the flat water for the handsome young men . . . Tomas Q. Morin was born in Texas and educated at Texas State University and Johns Hopkins University. He lives in San Marcos, Texas, and teaches at Texas State University.
