This month for Poetry 365 we’re featuring Nicholas Christopher’s engaging new book On Jupiter Place. Favorably compared to the work of Wallace Stevens, Elizabeth Bishop, and James Merrill, this eighth collection of poetry from the Tiger Rag author is perhaps his most personal and autobiographical work to date. Filled with intimate portraits of his grandmother, father, and even Lois Lane, On Jupiter Place shows why W.S. Merwin described Christopher’s poems as “vibrant with light and the surprise of recognition.” So don’t miss this engaging new book, sample a poem below, and make sure to stop back next month for Poetry 365.
