His poems have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies in the U.S. and abroad, including The Oxford Book of American Poetry and The Best American Poetry series. Violi has received prizes including the Zabel Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Praise for Paul Violi’s Overnight:
“Violi's poems are fearless--humor courts failure at every turn--and beautifully constructed. He is one of a handful of American poets worth making a detour to hear read aloud.”
