LEXINGTON, Ky. - June 14, 2014 - PRLog -- FutureCycle Press is proud to announce the publication of David Chorlton: Selected Poems, a must-have book for those who already know the work of "one of the best poets of the Boom generation" (Eric Greinke in Presa) and those who have yet to discover his work. Even fans who already have a number of Chorlton's books will find many poems in this collection they may never have heard or seen before.

David Chorlton was born in Austria and grew up in Manchester, England. In 1971 he moved from the rainy industrial city to the cultural city of Vienna and stayed seven years before moving to Phoenix (his wife’s home), where he began to invest more time in his writing. Arizona’s landscape and wildlife gradually infiltrated his work, where he can show his affection for them even while acknowledging that he remains, quite contentedly, unassimilated. This is a circumstance to which he owes much of his poetry.

With more than 90 diverse selections spanning the work of 30 years and 29 books and chapbooks, David Chorlton: Selected Poems is a great introduction to Chorlton’s poetry as its themes have ranged from his European background to the desert Southwest. In addition to poetry, Chorlton also writes fiction and literary criticism. He is senior poetry editor for FutureCycle Press and serves as co-editor (with Robert S. King) for most of the press's Good Works projects (www.futurecycle.org/GoodWorks.aspx), proceeds of which benefit various charitable causes. Chorlton is deeply attuned to and involved with the world, and this is well reflected in his work.

David Chorlton: Selected Poems is available in print-on-demand and Kindle editions from the FutureCycle Press catalog at www.futurecycle.org and on Amazon.
