Dean Young

One of the best books on the shelves of my office bookcase is Elegy On Toy Piano by Dean Young. I’m reading through it again this week. Because I have enjoyed it so much, I’ve broken one of my most sacred rules. I ordered a HARDBACK copy of Young’s latest book, Fall Higher. About a week ago, npr.org posted a great article about this incredible writer, who received a heart transplant this spring.

The Heart Of Dean Young’s Pre-Transplant Poetry

The web article is excellent and includes several poems, including some with voice recordings by Mr. Young.
