I discovered Brian Turner's collection Here, Bullet a few years back when I traveled to Raleigh, NC to read with U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. Turner wrote the poems while serving in the military in Iraq. They are stunning poems. Turner is an important voice in contemporary American poetry. Edward Byrne features his work in the new Valparaiso Poetry Review, along with an excellent interview. Please visit the site to read Turner's poems and his interview responses.
Here is a brief segment from that exchange.
