Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
I'm excited to have a new poem online at The McNeese Review. "Someone He Loved" is part of the new book manuscript I've been working on about a teenage boy's experiences in a time of war, just before and just after. This poem focuses on the boy's Uncle Albert.
Thank you to the editors for publishing my long poem, "Forgotten Until You Find It," in the spring issue of The Southern Review. This poem, part of my forthcoming book The Grace of Distance, was inspired by a lunchtime trip to The Frick to see The Girl with A Pearl Earring when she was visiting.
