Daisy Fried: National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist

Congratulations to Daisy Fried, whose My Brother is Getting Arrested Again (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2006) has just been named a Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. I met Daisy when she was a Fellow at Bread Loaf in 2002. She is a great poet and one of my favorite people.

The other finalists are:

Troy Jollimore, Tom Thomson in Purgatory (Margie/Intuit House)

Miltos Sachtouris, Poems (1945-1971) (Archipelego Books)

Frederick Seidel, Ooga-Booga (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)

W.D. Snodrass, Not for Specialists: New and Selected Poems (BOA Editions)

Congratulations also to Robert Nazarene and all the good people at Margie/Intuit House.

That is a pretty big splash!

I'd give a Best Title Award to Frederick Seidel. Ooga-Booga, can it get any better than that?
