Greg Kuzma's Mountains of the Moonis the second selection from his longer poems. The first, All That is Not Given is Lost, was published in 2007 by Backwaters Press. A third volume is in preparation. Kuzma's gift is his ability to slip deeply into the territories of human soul, where he teaches us to endure against loss, to ascend from despair, and to celebrate how beautiful imperfect lives may be.

Author Biography

Greg Kuzma recently retired from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln as Professor Emeritus, having taught poetry writing at all levels there for forty-two years. He lives in Crete, Nebraska with his wife, Barb.
