The Economist, perhaps the most influential news magazine in the English-speaking world, has just chosen Belonging, by OUR Dick Davis, as one of its books of the year, the only original volume of verse so honored. Congratulations to Dick, and may all those of you haven't gotten the book scurry over to Amazon or to the Ohio University Press website and do so!

Here's the Economist write-up:

"A British poet married to an Iranian, Dick Davis teaches Persian literature in the United States. The cultural diversity of his life is reflected in the variety of his poems--in their skilfully handled formal range, in the scope of their subject-matter and in their commitment to an ideal of civilised life shared by many cultures. 'Belonging' is a profound and beautiful collection, which stimulates, dazzles, suprises and delights."
