Poems From Shaw Island By Brian Lynch
Paperback: $3.62
Ships in 3-5 business days.
These poems, for the most part, represent writing done while living on Shaw Island (in the San Juan Islands, Washington) from 2006 through 2007. The first two poems in the collection, Pieces of Shaw... More > and Mood Fog Clearing, were written much earlier, in 1990. Mood Fog Clearing was published by Prune Alley in 1991 (Prune Alley: The Orcas Island Library Literary Quarterly, II(4), 26-7). All the others appear in print for the first time (save the odd appearance on the family website or a personal gift). Most of the work has as its focus an evocation of the spirit of Shaw Island. Some of the poems head off in directions (inward and outward) that leave Shaw far behind, but always find their way back, in spirit, to the unique vision and music which is at the heart of the island.< Less

Get ready for a wild ride! Carole's stories span 50 years and bobble close to home and around the world. They roam the yaylas of the Kaçkar Mountains and the highlands of Peru. They explore... More > the streets of Senegal and the violent history of Guatemala. They wander the hillsides of Southern Spain and the steppes of Eastern Turkey. And they ramble the plains of Mesopotamia and the tundra of Iceland. Hold an assault rifle and a sheep's teat, visit Carole's childhood bathroom and her husband's dresser, careen the streets of Trabzon and join the Order of the Golden Dragon. Cook flat bread over an open fire, make friends around the globe, and sleep in a French garret and a Turkish container. You'll float a log to Yellow Island and take a plane with a hole in the wing, meet a Kurdish housewife and the women of Paris. You'll drink tea with armed guards and collect dead birds along the road. Prepare to expect the unexpected.< Less
