David Kirby’s collection The House on Boulevard St.: New and Selected Poems was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2007. His book Little Richard: The Birth of Rock ’n’ Roll was hailed by the Times Literary Supplement of London as “a hymn of praise to the emancipatory power of nonsense.” His honors include fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. His latest poetry collection is Get Up, Please.
