Dave Seter's Chapbook Coming Early 2010
The title poem, Night Duty, was inspired by the author's first job out of college. As a field engineer with Public Service Electric and Gas Company, he was assigned to cover gas fires and explosions after hours, in the urban centers of Newark, Patterson, and Jersey City.
Sonoma County poet Maya Khosla says, "Night Duty is full of precise dissections of nights and days rendered with rhythm, punctuated by bolts, grit, rattling and, more often than not, humble questions left floating in the air."
Night Duty will be released in March, but is currently available for pre-order at a substantial discount through the publisher's web site by clicking here. Additional information can also be found at Seter's web site, www.daveseter.com.
Donors with access to Perigee's archives can find his poem, "Billboard" in our October 2008 archived issue.
