Kevin Pilkington is a widely published and award-winning poet. In his newest collection, In the Eyes of a Dog, published by New York Quarterly Books, he takes the reader on a vivid explorative journey. It is a journey that begins in New York City where he lives and where he distills its concrete landscape with an insightful, unexpected use of language and imagery. His Boswellian eye for detail and accuracy of insight continues as he travels to New England, and onto the beaches of California, Mexico, the Caribbean and then to Greece. Each poem in the collection is a discovery transforming the familiar into an individual, unique experience. These poems are personal confrontations with the world and the ultimate inner discovery of what it means to be human.
