Musician/songwriter Terence Winch, author of Contenders and Irish Musicians/American Friends, continues his unique, robust examinations of the American psyche. Winch was selected by Irish America magazine as one of the "Top 100 Irish Americans."Barbara Guest chose The Great Indoors as winner of the Columbia Book Award: "My selection for the 1996 Columbia Book Award is The Great Indoors by Terence Winch. I admire its atmosphere of the bitter-sweet, the expert sense of line, and its many subtle and humorous ways of Washington, D.C. I have lived in Washington and Winch understands the drift of those unenclosed by political boundaries, of the way day passes into night in that city. He has caught the essence of many moods, without exploiting them."

I've heard Garrison Keillor read "Success Story" and "Civilized Atmospheres" on the Writer's Almanac and really loved both poems. They're both in this book, as is "Mysteries", a really funny and memorable poem that wound up in the Oxford Book of American Poetry which is kind of amazing since it features orangutans. My favorite of all the poems in this book is "My Friends". I really like the ending where it reads as follows: "But I take comfort in a dreamlike kind of consciousness/in which every breath is like my last breath/ and all my friends are quiet as brides/ skating along on sheets of ice."

I LOVED this book. I read a lot of poetry and don't normally come out with a lot of favorites, but he has given me a favorite poem here - Success Story. All of the poems are very cool and readable! (not too Irish too if you were wondering)
