New Collection by Jason Irwin
A new collection, "Watering the Dead" by Jason Irwin is available from Pavement Saw Press. This strong collection is also the winner of the 2006/2007 Transcontinental Poetry Award.
Jason Irwin's first full length collection includes narrative working class poems. Some of these first appeared in Blue Collar Review, Confrontation, Living Forge, Lumina, Miller’s Pond, Pearl, Plainsongs, Slipstream, The Sycamore Review, and The Same.
The poetry in this collection is rooted unmistakably in the reality of Irwin's experience and shows the sensitivity and insight inherent in great poetry. It is, like the best working class literature, fine art wrought from the nitty-gritty.
