Johnston's third book of poetry returns ad fontes: to sources in Greek and Latin, secret derivations, wellsprings of feelings and forces of nature. Sonically alert, these poems attend to a world with restless curiosity.
Devin Johnston was born in 1970 and spent his early years in the piedmont of North Carolina. He has lived in Chicago where he was poetry editor for Chicago Review. He is the author of two previous books of poetry, Aversions and Telepathy, and was named a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Sources (TPP, 2008).
