Always Danger (Crab Orchard Series in Poetry)

Always Danger (Crab Orchard Series in Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Always Danger offers a lyrical and highly imaginative exploration into the hazards that surround peoples lives—whether its violence, war, mental illness, car accidents, or the fury of Mother Nature. In his second collection of poems, David Hernandez embraces the element of surprise: a soldier takes refuge inside a hollowed-out horse, a man bullies a mountain, and a giant pink donut sponsors age-old questions about beliefs. Hernandez typically eschews the politics that often surround the inner circle of contemporary literature, but in this volume he quietly sings a few bars with a political tone: one poem shadows the conflict in Iraq, another reflects our own nations economic and cultural divide. Always Danger parallels Hernandezs joy of writing: unmapped, spontaneous, and imbued with nuanced revelation.

About the Author

David Hernandez published his first collection of poems, A House Waiting for Music, in 2003. His poems have appeared in FIELD, The Missouri Review, Ploughshares, AGNI, The Southern Review, and TriQuarterly. His drawings have appeared in Other Voices, Gargoyle, and Indiana Review. Hernandez lives in Long Beach, California, with his wife, writer Lisa Glatt.
