Tony Towle

A native New Yorker and a longtime resident of downtown Manhattan, Tony Towle is "one of the New York School's best-kept secrets," as John Ashbery has written, calling his New and Selected Poems "a feast." Towle has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Poets Foundation, and the Ingram Merrill Foundation, among other honors and prizes. This is his twelfth collection of poems.
