Barber '78, Jennifer
Take Jennifer Barber: "Jennifer Barber's poems are sensual, attentive lyrics which move with a growing necessity and insight and surprise. I am grateful for this fine book." - Jean Valentine Take Mark Bibbins: "also has the courage to stop, to pin down the always irrational present moment, and the reader is eager to follow, to inhale its scathing or enticing perfume. Swerve's tire-marks announce the arrival of a brilliant young poet." -John Ashbery Take Maggie Nelson: "Maggie Nelson brings a deft and unflagging wit to her writing and her powers of invention never quit. I love the way all she says keeps moving, insistent, often abrasive, and always specific. Can it get any better? I don't think so!" - Robert Creeley

Dog is a Gift Dog is a Gift
Nye '64, Ken
This book is dedicated to the dogs that have filled my life, from boyhood to the present, with companionship and affection and laughter. To: BONNIE, a black cocker spaniel, the dog of my childhood. She joined our family when I was two. She died when I was 18. I wasn't with her when she was put down. I should have been. TAFFY, a labcollie mix, Ann s and my first family dog, the best Frisbee player I have ever known. She loved to get in under the covers with me when Ann wasn t looking. MISSY, our stepdog, a gentle and loveable golden retriever who celebrated my return to the house in the afternoon by presenting me with a stone dug up from the driveway. (In the thirteen years we lived on the farm, Missy moved our entire driveway ten feet.) TESSY, our first golden puppy, my farm and woods wandering companion, the first dog I trained, a special dog to me. GRACIE, a tiny blond cocker spaniel waif, rebuffed by her mom and rescued by my sister who fed her day and night for weeks with an eye dropper and spoon to keep her alive, blind in one eye, always grateful for our attention. ROSIE, a spunky blond cocker spaniel who, when we got a golden puppy (Barney), enjoyed bossing him around because she was bigger than he was, but who, when he had grown to be four times her size, could never figure out why he didn t do what she wanted him to. BARNEY, a great big golden, the only male dog I have ever raised, with a heart as big as his head and a love of people that knew no limits. He was a joy. I still miss him. ELLIE AND FRANKIE, our two abandoned golden retriever/ yellow lab mixed breeds who rescued me from grief, and who reminded me every day of the joy and affection that dogs bring into our lives. COZY, our new baby golden retriever (now two years old) who is everything a dog person could ask for in a dog: a sweet, obedient, snugglebunny who delights in chewing on Frankie s collar and neck, probably the last puppy I will ever have.
