DANIEL BOSCH was awarded the first Boston Review Poetry Prize (1998) for four poems riffing on films starring Tom Hanks. His work has been published in journals such as Poetry, Slate, The TLS, Agni, Berfrois, The New Republic, The Huffington Post, and The Paris Review, and a collection, Crucible was published by Other Press in 2002. He is Senior Editor at Berfrois.

Note: With the exception of alterations of pronouns, tenses, word order, and punctuation, along with insertion of possessive pronouns for noun phrases, and the removal of quotation marks, “My Peculiar Geography” is taken entirely from Wikipedia entries for the founder of “Jeffrey Bezos” and “Amazon” (the river). It will appear in the forthcoming debut volume of poems *by* Bezos, Relentless.

The Glasgow Review of Books (ISSN 2053-0560) is an online journal which publishes critical reviews, essays and interviews as well as writing on translation. We accept work in any of the languages of Scotland – English, Gàidhlig and Scots.

We aim to be an accessible, non-partisan community platform for writers from Glasgow and elsewhere. We are interested in many different kinds of writing, though we tend to lean towards more marginal, peripheral or neglected writers and their work. 

Though, our main focus is to fill the gap for careful, considered critical writing, we also publish original creative work, mostly short fiction, poetry and hybrid/visual forms.
