Jim Harrison's New Poetry Out in April

At a time when major publishing houses are forgetting all but the “blockbusters” (see yesterday’s Wall Street Journal article), I noticed yesterday that Copper Canyon Press will be publishing Jim Harrison’s latest book of poetry, In Search of Small Gods, in April. From the book: “Maybe the problem is that I got involved with the wrong crowd of gods when I was seven. At first they weren’t harmful and only showed themselves as fish, birds, especially herons and loons, turtles, a bobcat and a small bear, but not deer and rabbits who only offered themselves as food. And maybe I spent too much time inside the water of lakes and rivers. Underwater seemed like the safest church I could go to . . .”
