Great Regulars: Poetry: "Life on Mars" by Tracy K. Smith

(Graywolf Press), a collection of bold, skillful poems, taking readers into the universe and moving them to an authentic mix of joy and pain. Finalists: "Core Samples from the World," by Forrest Gander (New Directions), which explores cross-cultural tensions in the world and digs deeply to identify what is essential in human experience, and "How Long," by Ron Padgett (Coffee House Press), a collection of poems that juggle delight, wit and endless fascination with language.
