Dead Man's FloatBook - 2015
"His poems succeed on the basis of an open heart and a still-ravenous appetite for life."--The Texas Observer "Harrison doesn't write like anyone else, relying entirely on the toughness of his vision and intensity of feeling."--Publishers Weekly "Harrison's essential honesty is deeply affecting."--Library Journal - The title Dead Man's Float is inspired by a technique used by swimmers to conserve energy when exhausted, to rest up for the long swim to shore. In his fourteenth volume of poetry, Jim Harrison presents keen awareness of physical pains, delights in the natural world, and reflects on humanity's tentative place in a universe filled with ninety billion galaxies. By turns mournful and celebratory, these fearless and exuberant poems accomplish what Harrison's poems always do: wake us up to the possibilities of being fully alive."-- Provided by publisher.
