He wrote the critically and popularly acclaimed novel\, The Commandant of Lubizec\, as well as volumes of fiction and poetry including The Collector of Names\, Adoptable\, and This London. \n“This story is gripping in its tragedy\, thrilling in its detail\, and unforgettable for its protagonist\, whose will to not only survive\, but thrive\, live\, and love is a testament to the human spirit. In the Shadow of Dora is tenacious\, just like its hero.”\n— Peter Geye\, author of Northernmost and Wintering \nHicks has been published widely in some of the most vital literary journals in North America. His poetry has appeared on NPR\, The PBSNewsHour\, and American Life in Poetry\, and he is the radio host of Poetry from Studio 47. A dual-citizen of Ireland and America\, now that he has returned to his Midwestern roots he enjoys watching thunderstorms roll across the prairie with his British wife and playing in the backyard with his son. \n\n\n \nSNC Tahoe's Writers in the Woods features well-known poets and writers from all over the country presenting readings and workshops.
