Author's Bio

Dan Lewis lives on the edge of the Patch Reservoir in Worcester, Massachusetts. Of his first full-length collection of poetry, John Hodgen has said: “These are finely crafted poems of extraordinary delicacy and infinite strength. There is a Whitman-like generosity of vision, remarkable intelligence, a heart as big as the world, and, always, this questioning, this sense of ongoing wonder. These poems sing.”
