Few poets of Western America fill the "organic intellectual" role better than David Lee. His poetry is the real deal when it comes to recording hilariously insightful--and linguistically accurate--observations of rural culture and America at large while using a host of astute literary allusions and techniques. Imagine Robert Frost simultaneously channelling Will Rogers and Ezra Pound. Imagine Chaucer with a twang. Last Call is bloody brilliant and wickedly witty.
David Lee was named Utah's first Poet Laureate in 1997, and he has received the Mountains & Plains Booksellers Award in Poetry, the Western States Book Award in Poetry, and the Utah Governor's Award for lifetime achievement. He was listed among Utah's top 12 writers of all time by the Utah Endowment for the Humanities. He is the author of 20 books of poetry, including So Quietly the Earth, which was selected for the New York Public Library's annual Books to Remember list in 2004; Moments of Delicate Balance, a joint collection with Nebraska Poet Laureate William Kloefkorn; My Town; and Porcine Canticles. He lives in Bandera, Texas, USA.
