you might also want to read the recent interview with Milner Place that i posted in this column as well.  for anyone interested in improving their work...the one sure way to accomplish that is to expose yourself to acknowledged masters...both contemporary and past masters.  check him out.

When I first read some of Milner Place's poems, it was Hemingway who sprang to my mind - Jack London, too. A great piece by Todd Moore, enthusiastic and exciting.

I received my copy of A Naked Invitation today. The images he conjours are so vivid.

Moore's essays, articles and poems are always exciting, vibrant and filled with life.  his poems have often been described as "cinematic"...Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS comes to mind.
