WAM Sept. 03-04 Joel Hynes' New Book
For those who love the raw, unvarnished reality depicted in the works of Joel Thomas Hynes, you’ll get your fix in his new book. But that’s not all you’ll get. “Straight Razor Days” is also full of love and tenderness and emotion. Inspired by the males in his life: his grandfather, his father and his young son. The work is one of poetry, or poetic narratives. It’s a new kind of work for Hynes. Chris O’neil-Yates caught up with him by phone earlier this week. Here is their conversation.
