A fourth week at Number 1 for Paul F. Lenzi and a second week for Atlas of Clouds. A second chapbook authored by the internationally acclaimed poet and this collection gives currency to some of the complexities of our human experience. They are at once provocative, poignant, stylish and readily accessible. Rich with artful syntax, this chapbook demonstrates why Paul F. Lenzi is among the best of our contemporary American poets.
Paul F. Lenzi’s tells us more about himself, “I am the father of three adult children, each of whom holds my undying love and irrepressible pride. Grandfather of eleven heartwarming youngsters, whom I can never see often enough. One of the early baby boomer generation. Retired Manhattan insurance company executive. Lifelong resident of New Jersey until retiring to rural New Hampshire in 2005. A first generation American born to Italian immigrant parents. Rutgers University alumnus: philosophy, ethics and political science.
