“Poet/actor/playwright: Adam LeFevre is a triple threat...”—Rebecca Ritzel, The Washington Post

Reviews / Endorsements

“I’ve waited for more than twenty-five years to be able to hold in my hands a new full-length collection of poems by Adam LeFevre, one of my very favorite poets ever. A Swindler’s Grace is a wry and ribald psalter, an American almanac of historical dismay. With an unflinching knife-blade of intelligence, Adam LeFevre underscores his lines with an oblique yet quietly elegant sense of disconnect – he lets us understand that we’re not feeling what we think we should be feeling. No poet of my generation is more accomplished at making a world so clearly askew on its axis feel, in its luminous abstractions, more properly aligned. Adam LeFevre is a master, a magician, and the most gracious swindler in American poetry.”—David St. John

ADAM LEFEVRE was born in Albany, New York in 1950, and raised in Coeymans, an old Dutch hamlet on the west bank of the Hudson River. He studied at Albany Academy, Williams College, and the University of Iowa. After a stint of itinerant labor across the country he settled in
New York City and began a career as an actor, on and off Broadway, in television and film. His previous collections of poetry are
Everything All At Once, from Wesleyan University Press, and Ghost Light, a chapbook from Finishing Line Press. His plays have been produced in New York City and regionally. He is the father of two grown children, Tate, an anthropology professor at Franklin and Marshall College, and Isaac, a film-maker. He currently resides in New Paltz, New York.
