We are delighted to announce that Chicago Review of Books has selected John McCarthy’s Ghost County as one of the best poetry books of 2016!
Here’s what they have to say:
“A love letter to the Midwest, John McCarthy’s debut collection of poetry Ghost County is the only book this year I’ve finished in one sitting,” says Heather Cox. “McCarthy, who lives in southern Illinois, paints a familiar, blue-collar picture of the Midwest but with a dose of surrealism that enlivens the region and gives it dynamic force in his storytelling.”
