What People are Saying About This
Meet the Author
DONALD REVELL grew up in the South Bronx, “a desolate and frightening locale for which I still have a deep, almost erotic affection but which also made me feel a political and social anger.” Many of his poems are about this childhood and the refuge he found in the beauty and music of a Bronx Episcopalian church. From the Abandoned Cities was a National Poetry Series winner in 1982. He won a Pushcart Prize in 1985, and a NEA fellowship in 1988, and wrote The Gaza of Winter(1988). He is Associate Professor of English at the University of Denver.
