About this title


This book traces one Southerner's journey from rural Mississippi, with memories of his sharecropper grandparents and his father's country store, to his life as a professor, devoted family man, world traveler, and, ultimately, poet of the gentle events of everyday life.


I'm always delighted by poetry that reveals images to me as clearly as the truest colors on a movie screen--and that makes me think. Reading Bob Hamblin's poetry is like gazing at images you love: of family, of your homeland, of favorite icons. Sometimes the images disturb, make us question the event and response. And we are invited to question, because these are not only poems about one Southerner's passage, they're poems about our own memories and, with grace and respect, about the human condition.
