Mourning Jake Adam York

york-head-300x199All of us here at the New England Review mourn the loss of Jake Adam York, who died suddenly on December 16, 2012, at the age of forty. He was an accomplished poet and generous friend to many.

His poem “Self-Portrait as Superman (Alternate Take)” appears in our current issue, and you can hear him read “What Is Given, What Is Made,” “Grace,” and other poems at the Southern Foodways Alliance. His poems are widely available online and in three collections, Persons Unknown, A Murmuration of Starlings, and Murder Ballads.
