Philip Fried, a New York-based poet and little-magazine editor, has published three books of poetry: Mutual Trespasses (1988); Quantum Genesis (1997), which A.R. Ammons called "a major new testament"; and Big Men Speaking to Little Men (Salmon, 2006), which — said Marilyn Hacker — "represents much of what I admire in contemporary American poetry. . . ." His most recent book of poetry is Cohort (Salmon, 2009), which D. Nurkse characterized as "Tense with dark wit and wild originality." Fried also collaborated with his wife, the fine-art photographer Lynn Saville, on a volume combining her nocturnal photographs with poetry from around the world. And he is the founder of The Manhattan Review, an international journal that for three decades has published the best in Anglophone poetry and translations.

In 2014, Salmon Poetry published Philip Fried's sixth book of poems, Interrogating Water, which focuses on the national security state. British poet Carol Rumens called the book "outstanding" in The Guardian and praised it for "the valor and vision of its protest."
