The National Book Critics Circle Award-winning 'poetry star' (New York Times) presents his first collection of poetry since 2013's The Hotel Oneira.
August Kleinzahler has earned admiration for his musical, precise poems that are grounded in the people, places and language among which he has lived. Snow Approaching On The Hudson is a collection of poetry that moves back and forth across the country and abroad, and through the realm of dreams, past and present, and inner and outer landscapes. The haunting, shifting atmosphere Kleinzahler creates is peopled by characters intimate, historical and imaginary.
Kleinzahler's signature rhythmic propulsion serves as the engine for his newest collection, and his always-masterful free verse conveys a life thoroughly lived and brilliantly perceived.
August Kleinzahler was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, in 1949. He is the author of twelve books of poems and a memoir, Cutty, One Rock. His collection The Strange Hours Travelers Keep was awarded the 2004 Griffin Poetry Prize, and Sleeping It Off in Rapid City won the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry. That same year he received a Lannan Literary Award. He lives in San Francisco.
