Postscript to War won the 2020 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. Uniting his own combat experience with those of other veterans, Bill Glose examines the long-lasting effects of battle and the injuries that are often invisible to the naked eye. The poems in Postscript to War peel away the scab of memory to reveal the raw and tender emotions that lie within. The individual poems in this collection have won seven awards and two were nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
