Lost and Found

book cover

Professor Emeritus of English Andrew Merton has published his second full-length book of poetry, “Lost and Found (Accents Publishing). The collection continues the poignant, personable humor from his first work, “Evidence that We Are Descended from Chairs,” but adds a confessional flavor that gives his new work a more nonfictional feel. “Lost and Found is an autobiographical journey that begins at conception and extends beyond the grave, and spans the spectrum from realism to the surreal.

“Lost and Found” is available at the publisher’s website.

Merton is a journalist, essayist and poet. His first book of poetry, “Evidence that We Are Descended from Chairs,” with a foreword by Charles Simic (Accents Publishing, 2012) was named Outstanding Book of Poetry for 2013–2014 by the New Hampshire Writers’ Project. Merton retired from UNH earlier this year.
