This week we welcome Jerry Williams as our guest blogger. Jerry is an associate professor at Marymount Manhattan College. His first collection of poems, Casino of the Sun, (Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2003), was a finalist for the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. His second collection Admission (Carnegie Mellon, 2010) is "as funny and tough and thrilling a collection of poems as I’ve read in some time" (Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly). Williams is the editor of It's Not You, It's Me (Overlook Press, 2010), an anthology of poems about breakup and divorce. He lives in the Bronx with his wife, Shelby Stokes.
