Ralph Adamo

Adamo & Isaac

Ralph Adamo's eighth poetry book, All the Good Hiding Places (Black Widow Press), was published in 2020, just in time for the pandemic to drop a wet blanket over such non-essential products. His seventh collection, Ever: Poems 2000-2014, was published by Lavender Ink. Previous volumes include Waterblind: New and Selected Poems (2002), and two of Lost Roads’ Publishers’ earliest books, Sadness at the Private University (1977) and The End of the World (1979. He also edited the selected poems of Everette Maddox (I Hope It's Not Over and Goodbye, UNO Press, 2009), and recently wrote the preface for the collected poems of John Stoss, Nobody Loves Me (Lavender Ink 2022). Among his awards are an LEA Individual Artist Grant in 1998, and a 2003 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in poetry. He was an editor of Barataria in the '70s and New Orleans Review in the '90s. He is Professor of English at Xavier University, where he has taught since 2007, and where he also edits Xavier Review and Xavier Review Press.
