9781938853234: Whatever It Takes to Make Us Feel Alive

Bill Edmondson’s long-awaited first book is a tour de force of distinctive, finely-honed poetic skills and a world view brutally honest yet ultimately hopeful. In lines carved like phrases from a jazz score, Edmondson's poetry travels a sinewy geography—the Mississippi River, Molokai, New Orleans, San Francisco’s Tenderloin—and the human landscape as well, all sides of it, behavior and spirit. This book is a master work, its poems haunting and unforgettable.

About the Author:

Bill Edmondson was born seven miles south of Bandon, Oregon; dropped out of high school; had many jobs (among them working as a traveling salesman peddling vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, and encyclopedias); served twelve years in the U.S. Navy—mostly on destroyers—then abandoned his Navy career after having participated in the bombardment of the ancient Vietnamese city of Hue during the Tet offensive. He went back to school, received his M.A. in English Literature from San Francisco State during the seventies, and taught for many years at City College of San Francisco. His poetry has appeared in Field, Fugue, Confrontation, and many other journals over the past few decades. He calls New Orleans, San Francisco, and Molokai home, but lives in Santa Rosa, California.
