About the Author:

Ray Nargis is an award-winning poet, short story, and non-fiction writer who grew up on a horse ranch near Ludington, Michigan, and spent the majority of his life teaching, working, and writing in northern Lower Michigan. Mr. Nargis currently lives in Ely, Minnesota, and is the host of The Pathways, a popular Sunday morning radio program on local radio station, WELY, 94.5 FM. He divides his time between fishing and paddling the rivers and lakes of northern Minnesota, a cabin in Ontario, and visiting his sons in California and Michigan.

Review:

In this long-awaited collection we are made welcome in the world of Ray Nargis. Here philosophy emerges from birdhouses as owls watch men dance in gravel, and the smell of the bait box connects the childhood past to the knee-cracking, grown-up now. Humor and sadness ride on Ray's voice together to round up wisdom from its hiding place in the cattails. The whole gambit, from delight to grief to belly laughs to sighs of hard-earned certainty, are found here. Inside the pure, clear words of this world you may feel so welcome you won't want to leave! --Norm Wheeler- Director of Writing Studies, Leelanau Center for Education

In a rare combination of Elliott and Pound's high thinking and Garrison Keillor's down home humor, Ray Nargis invites us into the poetry of us, the ordinary human beings who stumble and fall, who rise and work, and who ultimately shape the world. His poems are laced with loss always tempered with wit and irony. His voice has an autumnal color all its own: hard-hitting and lyrical, brutal and kind simultaneously. He writes the human heart with all its flaws and depicts it with both strength and (in these new poems) truths gentled by the years. His relationship with meaning is like his relationship with nature: that of the true romantic; he is concerned with the individual's journey into the larger-than-life quality of a world both destroyed and resilient. You will enjoy the read and you will return to these poems; they linger like the taste of good wine. --Ann Marie Oomen-Chairwoman of Writing Department, Interlochen Arts Academy
