Book Summary

Howard J. Kogan is a psychotherapist and poet. His poems have appeared in numerous magazines, poetry journals and collections. Of A Chill in the Air, his third collection, Howard says, “readers familiar with my earlier publications will see some of the same themes continued: family and friends, the so-called real and imaginary world I inhabit, and increasingly as I age, poems about aging and death. I wrote these poems for you, to engage and seduce you, to draw you close so I would feel less alone.”

Book Reviews

"I want Howard Kogan to write things that make no sense. Read this book and see why he won’t."

Bernadette Mayer, author of The Helens of Troy, New York

"There is no reason not to read Howard Kogan’s collection of poems, A Chill in the Air. Kogan invites us into the narrative poetry of personal history, insights on life and death and other assorted bits of his everyday with ease. I always thought he was just a wise guy, but you learn from reading this book that he is a wise man."

Philip Good, author of Untitled Writings from a Member of the Blank Generation

About his writing he says, “After setting aside writing poetry in my twenties to attend to family and career, I returned to it in my sixties. I’m grateful to have this opportunity to return to an early love and give voice to the inner thoughts, perceptions, and memories that have been my constant and (mostly) welcome companions.”
