His poetry, like koans, illuminate in an extraordinary and minimalistic way, life and family in NYC.

A significant presence at the St. Mark’s Poetry Project and the Nuyorican Poets’ Café, Michael Scholnick was one of a number of poets whose work successfully bridged the gap between the New York School and the Beats. Clinch includes poems compiled from four manuscripts and two poems published here for the first time.
