Author Event: Jon Thompson
Description of Strange Country: Fascinated by strangeness that's made in the USA--its beliefs and organization, it affinity for violence and its elusive relationship with the past--Strange Country lyrically addresses itself to defining American landscapes/dreamscapes, and to their unaccountable beauty.
Jon Thompson teaches at NCSU where he edits the international online journal Free Verse: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry & Poetics and the single-author poetry series, Free Verse Editions. Strange Country is his third collection of poems. More on him at: www.jon-thompson.net
