Synopsis: Winner, 1998 Peregrine Smith Poetry Competition Humane and devoid of self-pity, Gary Young's prose poems in BRAVER DEEDS eloquently remind us it is our response or reaction to tragedy that is the true measure of our self-worth. "Like a modern-day realist's morality tales, these poems are backed by a moral purpose as compelling and dramatic as it is instructive and wise." --Sherod Santos

From the Back Cover: Gary Young is the author of three previous collections of poems, Hands, The Dream of Moral Life, and Days. His poems have appeared in a variety of magazines including Poetry, Antaeus, The American Poetry Review, The Kenyon Review, and The Nation. Among his honors are the James D. Phelan Award, a Pushcart Prize, and grants from the Vogelstein Foundation and the California Arts Council. He has been awarded fellowships from both the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. He edits the Greenhouse Review Press and is a well-known printer and book artist whose work is represented in numerous collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum and The Getty Center for the Arts. He lives with his wife and two sons in the mountains north of Santa Cruz, California.

"Gary Young has hone a sinuous, brief prose-poem form that carries a flavor uniquely its own--unflinching, stringent in beauty, austerely moving. These are poems that swerve, surprise, and still see and feel with one-pointed clarity; taken together, they create a volume both subtle and powerful." --Jane Hirshfield
