Summer lake : new and selected poems by David Huddle( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summer Lake beautifully coherent compilation of Huddle's best poetry to date, chronicles one late-twentieth-century American life, disclosing the anthropology of the human spirit. The collection opens with a plainness of language and form born of the poet's native Blue Ridge Mountains and builds to an amalgamation of free and formal variety, including sonnets and a lengthy poem in terza rima. It pauses over vivid childhood moments, visits the wounds from a "Tour of Duty" in Vietnam, and enters into that passage of deep adulthood during which one's parents fall ill and die. These are ordinary life events, rendered with uncanny penetration and at times open, even angry, despair. When all is said and done, though, the last two lines of the book recall "my mother cooking supper / my father whistling as he walked home from work."

Grayscale : poems by David Huddle( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spiraling between the tenses of time, Huddle creates in these poems a defense against the encroachment of age through the resources of language and memory, imagination and art. He gives us in Grayscale not false hopes about our lives but a range of ways to transcend their limits."--Jacket
Not : a trio : two stories and a novella by David Huddle( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not: A Trio is a sequence of three related stories that, taken together, form a unified work of fiction. This faceted approach is especially suited to a work that reveals the intricate connections among Danny Marlow, Claire McClelland, and Ben McClelland." "Danny, Claire, and Ben are thoughtful people who know each other well - yet hardly at all. Danny narrates the first story, introducing the reader to Claire, a therapist who has, he says, "lived a life that would drop most men in their tracks." The second story, told in the third person, explores the character of Claire's second husband, Ben. These two men and their stories set the stage for the appearance of Claire in the third and most powerful story. Claire informs the reader at the outset that a crisis looms: "At any rate, I'm not going to be able to go on with the life I have so carefully constructed for myself here in town."" "Huddle is especially concerned with the forces that separate these singular individuals from each other - and from themselves - as well as with the romantic and sexual energy pulling Danny and Claire together and with the wistful intimacy briefly held between Claire and Ben. In the process, the book also draws a darkly humorous picture of small-town life in contemporary Vermont."--BOOK JACKET

Glory river : poems by David Huddle( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Glory River, David Huddle's poems pit precise observation, extravagant language, and humor against despair in an attempt to find a way to live in a new century in which the values of the past are dissolving and those of the future are frightening. Huddle opens with a sequence of exceptional tales about an imaginary hamlet in the mountains of Virginia. The residents of Glory River are rough, crude, and full of fight, but eager to tell their stories, "to explain how / in that place they had become the people / they were." Huddle also includes a series of poems exploring modern life, touching upon subjects as diverse as memory, family, art, politics, and pain. Accessible and often humorous, the poems in Glory River range from the strange and extraordinary happenings in the fantastical Virginia town to the painful, hopeful, and no less magical situations that can occur in real lives. -- Publisher's website
My immaculate assassin by David Huddle( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maura Nelson, who has a sophisticated background in science, medicine, and programming, has stumbled upon a way to execute someone using only the computers in her home office--silently, anonymously, leaving no trace of violence, so that her target appears to have died of natural causes. Maura tests her method by eliminating Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad, but this experience affects her so deeply that she doesn't want to continue alone. She entices Jack Plymouth into a partnership to rid the world of those they decide "need to be dead." Both a steamy romance and a cyber-thriller, My Immaculate Assassin raises disturbing and timely questions about the technology and morality of "idealistic" murder, carried out remotely
Dream sender : poems by David Huddle( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Huddle is a source of light in an often gray world.''Booklist '[Huddle's poetry is] luminous and majestic.'' Philip Deaver, The Southern Review An account of spiritual survival through the practice of literary art, the poems in David Huddle's eighth collection, Dream Sender, move among a variety of poetic forms and voices. Here, a bear wonders why he could not have been a raccoon, a bird, or a meadow; and a five-year-old thrills to the forbidden taste of whiskey as he eavesdrops on his parents' after-dinner conversation. By turns outrageous and pragmatic, Huddle's poems acknowledge the powerful and disturbing currents of the contemporary world as they also explore the comfort and familiarity we find there. Huddle's poems illuminate the nature of relationships between family, friends, and even animals, celebrating their shortcomings, embarrassments, and eccentricities. At once frank and compassionate, Dream Sender finds both humor and poignancy in human imperfections
