On the Road to Patsy Cline


“John Reinhard’s new book of poetry comes to us with its sorrow and humor intact. Hw it combines extreme desolation and tenderness, wonder and disillusion iun quite this way I’ll never know, but it does, and the poems carry forward their accounts of loss and recovery with a fine lyric eloquence.” –Charles Baxter, author of First Light and Shadow Poetry

John Reinhard’s first book of poems, Burning the Prairie, won the 1987 Minnesota Voices Project and was published the following year by New Rivers Press. He was bon in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, in 1953, earned degrees from Eastern Michigan University and a creative writing MFA from the University of Michigan, where he won a Hopwood Award and Cowden Fellowship. Teaching jobs at the University of Minnesota-Morris and Winona State University brought him to Minnesota; in fact, he is probably still there, somewhere, tackling whatever rewarding hack work he can find, and relishing the company of his wife, Chris, and their daughter, Quinn Maclean Reinhard.
