Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Sun & Urn, Christopher Salerno’s latest book of poems, is filled with grief and loss—including the big three of modern life: infertility, divorce and death. But deep down, it’s also a tender, sometimes funny, ultimately hopeful book. This seemed like the perfect book with which to end my run as an interviewer for the Ploughshares blog—and this series the perfect excuse to get in touch with a poet whose work I’ve read with interest for a long time.
