Autor Sean Thomas Dougherty
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 21 sep 2010
"These soul-infused, deftly crafted stanzas pulse with the rhythms of a poet who lives his life out loud. Sean Thomas Dougherty has always shunned convention in favor of his fresher landscapes—and this book will be the one that stamps his defiant signature on the canon."—Patricia Smith
Sasha Sings the Laundry on the Line is a powerful, grief-driven, deeply felt collection that finds the beautiful and the true, the little epiphanies that give our lives meaning no matter how ephemeral they might be.
The author of ten previous poetry collections, Sean Thomas Dougherty teaches poetry at Case Western University and lives in Erie, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland, Ohio.

"Sean reconciles a lot of conflicting registers and references in his poems—hip hop and punk with Lorca, working class narratives with language theory, whatever 'defective means' as Williams said will suffice to make the poem live both on and off the page."
The Best American Poetry

"When poetry works well, we learn more than we actually read. Such is the case with Sean Thomas Dougherty's Sasha Sings the Laundry on the Line…"
