The Invention of New Jersey
Anderson, Jack
“I like his poetry because it takes me into another world, one where wit conquers the pain of inadequacy and the sur-beautiful covers up the dingy hopelessness of reality. The test of a poet, for me, is whether or not he can take you into his own world, his own creation, and fascinate you enough to stay there a while and savor the poems. i think Jack Anderson’s poetry is a true record of an imagination.”—Diane Wakoski
Jack Anderson, a graduate of Northwestern University, received his Master’s degree from Indiana University. He acted with the San Francisco Arena Theatre and San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, 1963, has been a drama critic, and worked for Dance Magazine.
