J. SCOTT BROWNLEE presents REQUIEM FOR USED IGNITION CAP

The recipient of this year’s Orison Poetry Prize, J. Scott Brownlee is celebrating the launch of his first full-length poetry collection, Requiem for Used Ignition Cap. Judge C. Dale Young praises J. Scott’s work as “devotion[al] . . . pay[ing] close attention to details and transform[ing] them into something organic, whole, and incredibly moving.” Focusing around the author’s native Llano, Texas, Brown’s poems locate “in the particulars of place the vehicles of transcendence.” J. Scott is the author of Highway of Belief, recipient of the 2013 Button Poetry Prize, and Ascension, recipient of the Robert Phillips Poetry Prize.
