Description


Jack Marshall draws linkages between past, present, and future to advocate for appreciating what we have, and being better stewards of it.

From "Birth took the bait"
Beaks of birds who earthward break
their songs, in drought soar
to clouds for a drink,

a sip of what earth doesn't offer
anymore, and summer vanishes,
like a stain that was once a shore.

Born in Brooklyn to Jewish parents who emigrated from Iraq and Syria, Marshall has received the PEN Center USA Award, two Northern California Book Awards, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a nomination from the National Book Critics Circle.
