Published by Texas Christian University Press as part of its Texas Poets Laureate Series, and with an introduction by Billy Bob Hill, Karla K. Morton:  New and Selected Poems includes new poetry as well as selected favorites written by Morton.

From the Introduction
by Billy Bob Hill

“As the 2010 Texas Poet Laureate, Karla K. Morton believes that poetry is everyone’s art, and has carved her place in Texas Letters with this stunning collection. With well-loved titles such as:

. For Love and Michelangelo,
. The Closer,
. Why God Needs a Shotgun,
. Alamo Coastline,
. Woman in the Pipe Shop, and
. When Texas No Longer Fits in the Glove Box,

... Morton's poetry will take you on a journey; her flowing style sparks memories and stirs emotions…
It's no wonder she has been called ''one of the more adventurous voices in American poetry.”

~ Billy Bob Hill
