Few poets of Timothy Liu`s generation are better known or more widely celebrated. Each of his books has been widely reviewed, and critics single him out as a master of language and, in Marilyn Hacker`s words, as `a poet of eros in all its guises.` Gay and Asian-American, Liu stands by nature outside the mainstream and brings to his poetry a radical independence and ambition that can transform his work into fire storms of conviction and insight. Hard Evidence is by far his most ambitious book yet, bringing to language a wild delight and assertiveness that make these poems among the freshest and most innovative of this or any decade.

Last year saw the publication of Word of Mouth, an anthology of gay male poets edited by Liu, perhaps most notable for its inclusion of experimentalists too often left out of "mainstream" queer collections.
