Awesome! I actually own a copy of Steve Fellner's Blind Date With Cavafy. It, as well as Richard Siken's Crush, are among my favorite books of poetry. Both poets have such a unique voice, and they're both so inspiring. *_*

But congratulations to all winners! I'm definitely going to have to check out some of these. :)

I'm very happy to hear Peter Cameron won for "Some Day This Pain...."
It was one of those books that just suck you in even when the character is deeply flawed to the point of irritation.

Congrats to them! It's must be amazing to win awards for your work. Hope to get that feeling one day.

Colleen wasn't that an opportunity to go shopping? Buy a new outfit?
