    "From John Olson" Dear Lee, Last night I went to hear Paul Nelson and Jim McCrary read at Subtext's Chapel Space at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford. I did not know Jim McCrary, but I wound up sitting behind him and his partner. His new book was under his chair, under the floor, and I kept staring at it. I got to thinking about how attractive poetry book covers are and that this one was especially attractive. That's when I started thinking I might buy the book. I normally don't buy books at poetry readings. I usually don't bring enough money with me. And sometimes the poetry is dull. But I liked McCrary's poetry. It was distinctly Western, for one thing, and droll and goodhumored and meditative, with those nice disjunctive shifts you get in Creeley's poetry. Then, during the reading, Jim mentioned that he lived in Lawrence, Kansas. I wondered if he knew you. Later, when I went to buy the book, I asked him, and he produced a picture I had already seen, one you sent me... More > taken many years ago, of you and Jim standing in front of some sort of kiosk or store. I had always assumed that was your husband. So there you have a story.< Less
