Diane Raptosh - American Amnesiac

Monday, July 21, 2014 - 7:00pm
The sustained dramatic monologue of John Doe describes and enacts the formidable struggles of ordinary Americans in this book-length poem.

Following the manic journey of a man stripped of memory, the poems in American Amnesiac ($16.00) confront the complexities of being American in an age of corruption, corporations, and global conflict.

I am a man missing a nation and a wife, strung up between a past
I may not want and a present in which I cannot make myself at ease.

Diane Raptosh has published three books of poems: Just West of Now, Labor Songs, and Parents from a Different Alphabet. The recipient of three Literature Fellowships from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, she teaches creative writing and literature at The College of Idaho. She lives in Boise with her family.
