Kevin Jeffery Clarke’s poems
have appeared in journals including Hudson Review and Paris Review, but
he had not yet published his first book when he died suddenly in 2002 at
the age of 48. Editor Don Morrill writes in his introduction that when
friends brought the manuscript to his attention, “It was clear that The Movie of Us was a complete work of undeniable power, that deserved an
audience at the first opportunity.” All royalties from sales go to the
Kevin Jeffery Clarke Poetry Publication Fund at the University of Tampa
Press to support the publication of other first books of poetry.
available in paperback.
