Kurosawa’s Dog

This collection, Hinrichsen’s fifth and most accomplished, will intrigue readers with poems that take, again and again, journeys of risk and insight, rising into vision and rueful delight. Winner of the 2008 FIELD Poetry Prize, Kurosawa’s Dog displays an astonishing range of feeling, form, and human compassion. Its landscapes are both Midwestern and global.
