NEW RELEASE - UNDERDAYS
UNDERDAYS, 2015 Sandeen Prize Winner, University of Notre Dame Press
"The poems in Martin Ott’s Underdays are in-between—the war and its aftermath, the love affair and its despair. In dense, often hauntingly musical verse, Ott interrogates our wide broken world, from Afghanistan to Los Angeles, with the unity of a singular, relentless voice."
—Dan O’Brien, author of War Reporter and Scarsdale
I'm thrilled to share my book launch at my favorite bookstore Skylight Books for Underdays with Rick Bursky's new book of poetry from BOA Editions, I Am No Longer Troubled by the Extravagance:
