Synopsis: There is a rich, generous spirit behind every one of the poems of Greg Watson's The Distance Between Two Hands. Grounded firmly in the physical world, these short, indelible lyrics--so compelling, so sharply etched in precise, evocative images--do what we ask of all good poetry. They make art of our common lives. The result is an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable volume, one that speaks with great clarity and a wisdom born out of everyday living. These are poems you will want to share, read aloud, and re-read. --Robert Hedin, author of The Old Liberators

About the Author: A rare kind of stillness seems to be the hallmark of a Greg Watson poem, which is all the more remarkable because the poems themselves are anything but static. The poems are about moments caught, pinned down, observed, but they open into such wide emotional and erotic terrain in which the literal, domestic world slides effortlessly into the figurative. We should be grateful that such poems exist, and that our paths can cross with theirs. Watson's images are surprising and ring true; while the themes--love, loss, faith, desire, and the beguilement of the world--are familiar enough, these are not "familiar" poems. Once you have encountered these poems you will wonder how you ever managed without them. --Jude Nutter, author of Pictures of the Afterlife and The Curator of Silence
