Editorial Reviews

Part poetry, part musings on life, Jack McCarthy’s words jump gracefully from memory to memory, moment to moment. It’s clear that McCarthy has experience performing his own poetry; this is a collection meant to be heard aloud and meant to be read by its author. With casual poise and a hint of wry bemusement, Jack McCarthy narrates his own work beautifully. From his thoughts on aging and the orthopedist to his ideas about the nature of memory, McCarthy’s well-chosen words angle at the deeper moments in life.

Publisher's Summary

By Gift Unearned is a collection of poems by Boston working-class guy Jack McCarthy. Trained in classics at Dartmouth, McCarthy found his true voice at the poetry slam in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at the Cantab. He quickly became a legend in the slam nation community and shared his prose poems with thousands. This audio reading and performance of his work includes "Drunks" and "Epithalamian".
