For over twenty years Sean Thomas Dougherty has negotiated between modernist and avant-garde writing and more populist traditions that extend back to Walt Whitman. His subject matter ranges from basketball to Bjork, from blue collar workers to Biggie Smalls, from Luciano Pavarotti to women waiting at a diner outside a prison in Upstate New York. Selecting from the best of eight previous collections, this New and Selected reveals the powerful arc and development of Dougherty's writing and establishes him as a voice of dissent for the future. A former Fulbright fellow, Sean Thomas Dougherty works at Gold Crown Billiards in Erie, Pennsylvania.

"[Dougherty] wears his heart on both sleeves--he is not for everyone: but readers in search of socially conscious vigor, of street energy and "something to hold onto," may find that Dougherty is just what they need." --Publishers Weekly "Dougerty has been a staple of the underground poetry scene for nearly 30 years. He's come up the hard way--no overnight successes, no long-term university positions--and his poetry is as honest and ALIVE as any you'll read. When people talk about the poetry scene going soft or the scourge of 'workshopped poems' or, God forbid, the death of poetry--it's because they haven't read Dougherty's work. This New and Selected volume covers his full career-to-date and should wake us all up to the underground sound that's throbbing like a bass drum in the heart of contemporary poetry. Poetry ain't dead. It's working in a pool hall in Erie, Pennsylvania." --BUSTLE "There is unflinching realism in his work that the astute reader soon realizes that his poetry and his humanitarianism are among the most worthy American literary descendants of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson, whom Dougherty refers to as the father and mother of American poetry." --Utah Review "Dougherty celebrates a pivotal (if symbolic) touchstone. For more than two decades Dougherty has maintained a unique place in contemporary poetry by honoring the ghost notes of our everyday life. The breadth of this selected collection charts the development of Dougherty's career and examines our conflated assumptions of race, class, and the urban experience... His work, however personal, can also serve as a kind of historical record; the heart inside the heart of urban America. The political realities of our time are evoked on every page, whether or not Dougherty calls them out by name. Rather, it is the canvas backdrop of an extended portrait spanning two decades of indelible poetry." -Pleiades
