More > melt away and like a drowning man he clutches furiously at the nearest solid object. This book is intended for such rescue purpose, buoyant and trustworthy but, it is to be hoped, not heavy. Let the frightened toaster turn first to the key word of his topic in this dictionary alphabet of selections and perchance he may find toast, story, definition or verse that may felicitously introduce his remarks. Then as he proceeds to outline his talk and to put it into sentences, he may find under one of the many subject headings a bit which will happily and scintillatingly drive home the ideas he is unfolding. While the larger part of the contents is humorous, there are inserted many quotations of a serious nature which may serve as appropriate literary ballast."< Less

Night Drive and Other Poems By Mary Clark
Paperback: $4.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
Mary Clark’s poetry explores, with apparent objectivity and occasional humor, the lives of others as well as the one within. With a deft control of language, she might take the reader through a... More > child’s early steps and those of an old man, to the cold beauty of nature, and the receding waves that follow a car’s plummet off a cliff. She masters variations of subject and mood subtly and with great range; there is light verse, what might be called a philosophical lyricism, and isolated episodes of tragedy that never veer into melodrama or sentimentality. In poems like “Snow”, emotion is aroused incidentally, almost imperceptibly, by the imagery of skiers who find themselves in a blizzard, and end as “…Large flakes/ Of intricate design/ Floating down, down/ Down into the dark below.”< Less
