This poet writes fiercely and hilariously about the trivial and the universal...in other words, about our lives and dreams. And he does it from an imagination whose inventiveness seems to have no limits. Winter is also the author of Maine and numerous children’s books.
"Jonah Winter resides in the Hotel Amnesia, the Hotel of Stars--and though he's a comedian, his room is one along the corridor of the wistful, urbane dreamers: Joseph Cornell, Jean Cocteau. Anais Nin, Charles Simic. At the heart of his method is the list, almost verbless: his marvelous catalogues place unlikely things side by side, creating within the frame of the poem the tantalizing windows of the city of dream."
