Congratulations to Eric Gansworth
Some weeks ago, I posted Eric Gansworth's poem "Loving That Land O'Lakes Girl." Eric is an enrolled member of the Onondaga Nation. The poem is in his book, A Half-Life of Cardio-Pulmonary Function. Eric wrote to me earlier today with terrific news.
It is on the Spring 2008 National Book Critics Circle's "Good Reads" list. Congratulations, Eric!
