Winner of the 2016 “Spring is the Mischief” Contest!
The stunning achievement of Kevin Clark’s The Wanting insists that it be placed on the bookshelf alongside Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage. This sequence of poems sets forth a vision of the American warrior so vivid, disturbing, and compelling that it could be realized only by an artist of extraordinary empathy, depth of psychological, historical, and cultural understanding, and absolute integrity. The truth of the Vietnam War has never been set forth more devastatingly.
