    The North End Poems
    With <b><i>The North End Poems</i></b>, his always vivid new collection, Michael Knox has further honed his lucid, accessible style. In the tradition of <b><i>The Collected Works of Billy the Kid</i></b>, Michael Ondaatje's classic book - length poem, this at once gritty and tender lyric sequence creates a desperate but surprising narrative that's reminiscent of David Adams Richards at his very best. Channeling the beliefs, passions, fears, friends and fights of Nick Macfarlane, a young steeltown warehouse worker, Knox creates the kind of hardscrabble, blue collar world that exists everywhere. Benders and punchups, beaters and punchclocks, give <b><i>The North End Poems</i></b> the means to explore notions of masculinity in both familial and social environs. Because this is a world largely without the presence of women, Nick's perspective takes a significant turn when he meets someone from the other side of the tracks - a University student named Carla who challenges him to think about a life beyond the north end and outside of what he thought possible.
