Ron Mohring’s Amateur Grief was originally selected by Maureen Seaton as the winner of the Frank O’Hara Chapbook Prize and published by Thorngate Road in 1998. This is a distilled chronicle of living with, caring for, and ultimately losing a loved partner to AIDS.

"Here are stories of two ordinary men living extraordinary lives. Or two extraordinary men caught in a frightening surreality. Or two men loving. Or two men dying. Or all of the above. In this lovely and powerful distillation of elegiac poems, Ron Mohring has accomplished a narrative nearly perfect in its timing, its graceful rhythms of understatement and precision. . ."
