"Killing Trout & Other Love Poems"


New Pages has published their first title, poetry by David Fraser.

"If you ever had any doubt as to who ‘the people’ are, doubt no longer. They are the tough-speaking, hard-living, heart-broken mysterious creatures in Dave Fraser’s poems. Their voices are as real as the world is unreal, but they stubbornly insist on the sometimes meager, but always live, facts of their lives. Find the ‘Americans.’
Read these poems."

– Andrei Codrescu, author of it was today: new poems, and MacCurdy Distinguished Professor of English at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge
