With a twenty-eight-year career at top city papers, Tucker
is on the New Jersey Star-Ledger team that won the 2005
Pulitzer for breaking news. As Lola Haskins praises, "His
poems know how important words are, so they don't waste them
. . . they penetrate to where people really live . . . so
refreshing in our hot and selfish times." With a seasoned
journalist's gaze, Tucker finds beauty, pathos, humor, and
poetry all around us.
