Takes us on a ride through New Jersey, past the Beats, New York City schools, Holocaust memories, onto the open road

The poems of WORKS traverse a course from the swamps of Shot’s home state of New Jersey to the endless possibilities of the open road, with rest stops along the way to highlight striking moments encountered during his 30 plus year career as a New York City public high school teacher, and to report on the twilight years of the Beat Generation. His engaging poetry is raw, from the gut, deceptively rich and humane in the face of this increasingly post-humanistic world.

DANNY SHOT, longtime publisher and editor of Long Shot arts and literary magazine, was born in the Bronx and raised in Dumont, New Jersey, by German Jewish refugees. He has spent over thirty years as a NYC public high school teacher, serving in the South Bronx, Harlem, and Brooklyn. Shot lives in Hoboken, New Jersey, where he is the poet-in-residence of the Hoboken Historical Museum.
