About this title

Synopsis:

Joseph Stroud was all but unknown when, in 1998, Below Cold Mountain appeared. As reviewers took note of this gorgeous book by a reclusive poet, Stroud’s poems found a larger audience: Garrison Keillor read them on NPR and his poems were reprinted in The Los Angeles Times and Washington Post. The sentiment shared by readers and booksellers was one of discovery.

In Joseph Stroud’s new book, his poetic imagination infuses landscapes, hard travel, and commonplace objects. Whether trekking through Mexico or Vietnam, living in the High Sierras, or “painting paradise” in the voice of Renaissance painter Giotto, Stroud’s lyrics, prose poems, elegies, and odes articulate a journey of uncommon attention and startling perception.

Joseph Stroud lives near Santa Cruz, California.

About the Author:

Joseph Stroud is the author of four books of poetry, and his poems have been widely anthologized as well as featured on Garrison Keillor's The Writer's Almanac. Stroud lives in Santa Cruz, California, and at Shay Creek in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
