American Book Review Features Poetry of J. Chester Johnson

The American Book Review as a literary journal aims to project the sense of engagement that writers themselves feel about what is being published. It is edited and produced by writers for writers and the general public. In American Book Review, Angelo Verga wrote “Johnson’s ‘Saint Paul’s Chapel’ is one of the most widely distributed, lauded, and translated poems of the current century.” In addition, he said of Johnson’s newest poetry book, Now And Then: Selected Longer Poems, “I read this book with sincere interest, and frequent pleasure; and I trust others, and not just fellow poets and the usual suspects/poetry buyers, will too.”
