Louis Jenkins reads from his new collection "In the Sun, Out of the Wind"


"Louis Jenkins' prose poems document what we have to say, acting out, in the roles of ourselves, our arguments with that barely improbable world(and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to) as we walk around steered by the dopey logic of idiom, providing sport for our neighbors." --Phil Dentinger

"Jenkins is a necessity of survival to any tortoise on this hare brained grand prix derby day winner takes all racetrack of these, our sunset glory dinosaur days." --Mark Rylance

Louis Jenkins is an American prose poet from Enid, Oklahoma. He lived in Duluth, Minnesota, for over 30 years with his wife Ann.
