The Green Cup
This is a whip-smart, original, and utterly lucid book. In poem after poem the reader is spoken with and not to. It’s like an intense conversation that you don’t want to end.
— Thomas Lux, author of nineteen books of poetry and winner of the Kingsley Tufts Award

The Fourth Paradise
The Fourth Paradise is filled with great care for the dead who have carried the long centuries to us. These are finely crafted poems which recognize the troubled beauty of this inheritance. Loggins melds the mythological within the ongoing history of the rolling fields of Connemara, and love's tangled arguments. The Fourth Paradise takes us to the edge of the landed world "to save what can't be saved, to hold/secure the magic of the world."
— Brian Turner, author of Here Bullet, winner of the Beatrice Hawley Award
Cover photo: Ladies View, Killarney National Park
Ladies View appears as The Fourth Paradise's cover photo, a scenic panorama on the Ring of Kerry in the Killarney National Park, Ireland. The name stems from the admiration of the view given by Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting during their 1861 visit.
