1556591233 Association Copy: Signed and inscribed by author to Bill Ransom. Very Good. Light shelf wear to covers/corners; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. Bill Ransom was born in Puyallup, Washington, in 1945, and he began full-time employment at the age of eleven as an agricultural worker. He attended Washington State University on track and boxing scholarships, and the University of Puget Sound on a track scholarship. Ransom has published six novels, six poetry collections, numerous short stories and articles. Learning the Ropes (Utah State University Press), a collection of poetry, short fiction and essays, was billed as "a creative autobiography."? His poetry has been nominated for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Frank Herbert, author of the Dune series, was Bill's mentor in the realm of fiction, and they co-authored several science fiction titles together. Ransom was my professor at The Evergreen State College before serving as academic dean for the last of his stint there. We have more of his books available upon request. Earthlight Books is a family owned and operated, independent bookstore serving Walla Walla, Washington since 1973.

More Description

Poetry. "John Balaban's compelling poems are alive with sensuous experience, his perspicuous language embracing both irony and compassion. A witness to war's savageries and the brutalities of life, this poet yet feels the possibilities of redemption in the natural world, and in the power of poetry: 'Crossing the moonlit fields/stippled bright with human bones,/ Tu Fu wrote that poetry is useless,/ in a poem alive these thousand years'" -Daniel Hoffman.
