Last night Mark Doty won the National Book Award for his Fire to Fire: New and Collected Poems. Doty has a long history with the University of Illinois Press. In 1993 we published his multiple-award-winning *My Alexandria, and in 1995 his Turtle, Swan and Bethlehem in Broad Daylight. He has also been a friend to us in our publishing of other volumes in the National Poetry Series.
