White Shirt

White Shirt is the latest book of poetry from Christopher Buckley, whose work has been described by Emilia Philips in James Dickey Review as about “the crafts not only of poetry, but of memory, politics, philosophy, and probability, that present the whole of one man’s experience, of his time, including his losses and lost bets.”

Buckley, winner of the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry for Rolling the Bones, has been a vital and compelling voice in American poetry for three decades. Philip Levine, writing in Ploughshares, describes his poems as “modest, straightforward, intensely lyrical, and totally accessible . . . This is a humble poetry of great truths and profound emotions that never overstates its concerns for the events both in and above the world.”
