Product Description


"...each poem expands into a larger tableau-shaped and honed down to a moment of sheer revelation." -- Yusef Komunyakaa

"Ross Martin is a postmodern Hardy Boy of poetry investigating the mysteries of love, art, and Charles Nelson Reilly." -- Denise Duhamel

"Ross Martin is one of the brightest young poets to have emerged in the last few years." -- David Lehman

From the Publisher

Zoo Press is pleased to publish Ross Martin's The Cop Who Rides Alone, an astonishing new volume of poetry that offers mature wisdom and a lively and confident playfulness (a rare combination in many first-books) and, in doing so, sets expectations for its poems and its readers. The poems (one almost thinks "problems" as in the language of arithmetic) admirably resolve to their own high standards. At once urbane and sad, funny and erotic, this poetry's prosody is deftly handled and apropos, its themes uniquely fondled by Martin's agile, creative and, often, apparently off-handed though frighteningly precise wit.
