Wrigley Earns Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Book Award

Monday, January 6 2014

University of Idaho Department of English professor Robert Wrigley has won a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association book award for his poetry collection "Anatomy of Melancholy and Other Poems."

The PNBA Awards Committee wrote about the book: "Vividly evoking the natural world and that most complex of beasts, the human, who stumbles and dances through it, Robert Wrigley's ninth collection of poetry is a quietly illuminating and richly pleasurable read. He deftly joins story and song in these moving, wry, thought-provoking poems."
