Sympathy for the Couriers by Peter Richardson
Winner of The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2008
Sympathy for the Couriers is a collection of messages from the border region of our lives – that vast allegorized territory of cheap self-deceptions and illusions. The “couriers” in question are the banged-up, long-suffering voices who, speaking through the poet, deliver their news: heartfelt, often heartbreaking admissions that, nonetheless, are always buoyant with aphoristic brio and panache.
