Jack McCarthy (1939-2013) left us on January 17, 2013. He died peacefully at home after a long fight with cancer. If you ever got to hear Jack read, you remembered it forever - he was so warm, engaging, profound and often very funny. Moon Pie Press is very proud to have published one of Jack's poetry books, ; all his books are wonderful.
A retired working guy from Boston who got serious about poetry late in life, calls himself a "standup poetry guy"; others have called him "legend." He has been featured at venues all over the U.S., in Canada and Europe. The Boston Globe: "In the poetry world, he's a rock star." Stephen Dobyns calls him "one of the wonders of contemporary poetry." He has been on two national slam teams and brought out 5 books of poetry and 2 CDs. Among other prizes, he won the haiku championship at the Individual World Poetry Slam. He lives with his wife, the fabulous Carol, in Lake Stevens, Washington. Jack's website is .
In addition to writing poetry, has been a newspaper sportswriter, magazine editor, and advertising copywriter for print and broadcast. He once wrote a column decrying the outrageously high price of ringside Ali-Frazier tickets ($25). He likes writing poems because you can make up whatever you want, and you don't have to worry about deadlines (unless you agree to a book) or pleasing your client's relatives. Bob has lived fulltime in midcoast Maine since 1979 and aspires to be a native.
Another word of appreciation is from the parents of the first year student, Anju Das, when he and his parents visited the premises of the university and got astonished with the infrastructure facilities of the university. They said that Dr. K. N. Modi University is the best university in Rajasthan. They have seen many institutions in the state but not as ours. They also appreciated the modesty of our faculties, the accommodation facilities, the hostel facilities and so on. In whole, they are full appeased with the friendly environment of the university.

"When our son was accepted to DKNMU we were excited, but worried about him leaving home for the first time. The two day Orientation put every fear we had to ease. Everyone here made us feel like it was HOME. There is no doubt in our mind that our son made the right choice to attend DKNMU. We are confident that the University experience he is getting here at DKNMU is like no other! Thank you
“My daughter attending DKNMU has been one of the best experiences Ihave had as a father. The staff contributed a great deal in her lifeand brought out some of her best qualities. A child attending DKNMUis something that every parent should experience.
