Founder and publisher of the Main Street Rag M. Scott Douglass visits Brookline and local poets Pushcart Prize-winner Paul Hostovsky and Colin D. Halloran, winner of the 2012 MSR Prize, as they each share their newest collections. Douglass’ Hard To Love is a sharp-eyed look at our strange and changing world. Hostovsky’s A Little in Love a Lot dances on the edge of comedy but strikes at the heart. Colin D. Halloran’s Shortly Thereafter is an intense and personal poetry of war’s front lines.
