From Barnes & NoblePoet, world traveler, and eloquent food enthusiast, Daniel Halpern is also one of our leading literary editors. He founded and now directs Ecco Press, a literary press that consistently publishes outstanding books of poems and is now an imprint of HarperCollins. For 25 years, Halpern also edited Antaeus, a leading literary journal that he started with Paul Bowles.
This winter, two books that showcase Halpern's dual talents as writer and editor have been released, both of which show the fruits of several decades of literary labor. Something Shining is his eighth book of verse, and in it, for the first time, Halpern writes about the wonders of fatherhood. With a series of poems about his daughter's fingers, questions, and fears, Halpern details the change a young child can bring to a worldview. The Art of the Story, a lively anthology of contemporary short stories selected by Halpern, offers a peek into the varied worlds of writers from around the globe.
