Derrick Brown's fourth collection of poetry won the Texas Book of The year prize.
Poems and short stories presented as an unrelenting machine of honesty that has been called his most personal collection of work. Strange Light takes us back to the docks, to a violent drama class and boring prom, an undersea conversation with Jacques Cousteau, and into his famous romantic bursts of verse. The epic poem, Strange Light, anchors this collection as one of the most inventive and potent collections of modern American poetry.
About.com called his 2009 collection Scandalabra, one of the best books of the year. Everything hilarious and stirring is illuminated. The power of Strange Light is waiting.
