Saving daylight by Jim Harrison ( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 639 libraries worldwide
Although best known for his fiction, Jim Harrison's poetry has earned him recognition as an "untrammeled renegade genius." This, his tenth collection of poetry--and first in a decade--is grounded in thickets and rivers, birds and bears, and the solace of dogs in a crazed political world. Whether contemplating the ephemerality of 90 billion galaxies or the immediate grace of a waitress, Harrison relishes the art and mysteries of being alive. "I'm enrolled in a school without visible teachers," he writes in the title poem, "the divine mumbling just out of ear shot." Mr. Harrison divides his time between Montana and southern Arizona.--From publisher description.
