What People are saying about this

Madeline DeFrees
“Take a sensibility of remarkable delicacy and precision, immerse it in the abrasive, often violent, atmosphere of 20th century blue-collar America, and what you get is a chronicle of drink, debt, and divorce. Joseph Millar’s Overtime includes some of the best poems about work since Phillip Levine’s. This is a first book of unusual maturity and promise.”
Barry Lopez
“No intellectual wink mars the poems, no one is pilloried, nothing manufactured. The forgiveness in this voice makes us feel brave.”
Billy Collins
Millar can ride a poem into some wildly imaginative territory, and he knows how to sound the blue note at just the right moment. His impulse is to tell a story, and he never forgets, as a poet, to tell it one line at a time.
