    "Funny and tender beneath a wry and gruff seen-it-all veneer, Harrison contemplates death, discerns divinity in every stone and leaf, and nobility in ordinary lives, and laughs at our attempts to separate ourselves from the rest of nature."?Booklist"His poems succeed on the basis of an open heart and a still-ravenous appetite for life."?The Texas ObserverNow in paperback, Jim Harrison's best-selling poetry book In Search of Small Gods is where birds and humans converse, autobiographies are fluid, and unknown gods flutter just out of sight. In terrains real and imagined?from remote canyons and anonymous thickets in the American West to secret basements in World War II Europe?Harrison calls upon readers to live fully in a world where "Death steals everything except our stories."Maybe the problem is that I got involved with the wrong crowd ofgods when I was seven. At first they weren't harmful and only showedthemselves as fish, birds, especially herons and loons, turtles, a bobcatand a small bear, but not deer and rabbits who only offered themselvesas food. And maybe I spent too much time inside the water oflakes and rivers. Underwater seemed like the safest church I couldgo to . . . Jim Harrison is one of America's most versatile and celebrated writers. He is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including Legends of the Fall and Dalva. His work has been translated into two dozen languages. He lives in Arizona and Montana.

    Sergei Yesenin was a Russian poet who, in 1925, hanged himself after writing his farewell poem in blood. Jim Harrison's "correspondence" with Yesenin is an American masterwork.In the early 1970s, Harrison was living in poverty on a hard-scrabble farm, suffering from depression and suicidal urges. He began to write daily prose-poem letters to Yesenin, confiding to his unlikely friend about sex, drunkenness, family, politics - about living for another day. Although "the rope" remained ever present, Harrison listened to his poems: "My year-old daughter's red robe hangs from the doorknob shouting Stop."
