ToKeepLoveBlurry_smaller

Since the start of the new year, Coldfront magazine has been counting down the Top Forty Poetry Books of 2012, and just last week announced Craig Morgan Teicher’s To Keep Love Blurry (BOA, 2012) is in the magazine’s Top Ten, placed at an impressive number six.

“With To Keep Love Blurry, we open a world of poems that ask obsessive questions of choice and consequence. These are poems of an interior that reimagines the past, pays tribute to predecessors, and above all, values frankness above artifice…The poems are severe in their honesty, which makes them riveting.”

On an interesting note, Teicher’s wife, the poet Brenda Shaughnessy (called “New York’s poetry couple extraordinaire” by Vanity Fair), is placed right next to Teicher’s collection, in the number five spot for her latest collection Our Andromeda, which came out the same month as Teicher’s To Keep Love Blurry.
