Kevin Prufer's National Anthem Earns Special Mention on Oxford American's Top 10 Apocalyptic Lit List

The Oxford American's Kevin Brockmeier recently released his list of "Ten Great Novels of the Apocalypse," including the haunting work of David Markson and Kurt Vonnegut, among other notables. And though it isn't a novel, Brockmeier can't pass up Kevin Prufer's poetry collection, National Anthem (Four Way Books, 2008): "This is the one (good) post-apocalyptic poetry collection I know...even the most naturalistic poems seem touched with a terrible wreckage."

Check out the list, and the rest of Kevin's praise here:
