"Family Portrait doesn't just rewrite the history of the prose poem in America--it sets the record straight. Murphy's scholarly introduction sets the stage for a book that traces the history of American prose poetry from 1900-1950. Simply put, this collection belongs on every poet's--and poetry lover's--bookshelf. No one will be able to write about the prose poem without referencing Family Portrait."--Peter Conners

S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Earnest Hemingway, Robert Lowell, Kenneth Patchen, Riding Jackson, Gertrude Stein, Jean Toomer, Thornton Wilder, and William Carlos Williams.
