The National Book Award finalist's eighteenth volume of nearly sixty poems.
Joyce Carol Oates once called William Heyen a “remarkable poet,” noting that he “writes with the wild, radiant audacity of the visionary.” W.S. Merwin praised “the urgency and authenticity” and the “plain directness” of Heyen’s voice. This same voice rings true again in this collection, Heyen’s eighteenth volume of poetry. The Confessions of Doc Williams & Other Poems is a book not to be missed!
