Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Liberation through ravishment, the clairaudience of all possible lives moving on the simple plane of the afterlife - Marvin Bell is not the dead man of his new book, he is perhaps the lama at the side of the deathbed who sings the declension of lights for any one of us who is struggling in a painful world of illusion. This powerfully new and healing work by Bell is not, of course, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, but for me, THE BOOK OF THE DEAD MAN is a cultural work of the West that must rival the Bardo Thodol for vision, beauty, and importance"--Norman Dubie.

Marvin Bell, author of fifteen volumes of poetry and prose, is a distinguished poet and influential teacher who for the past 35 years has served as a faculty member at the Iowa Writers' Workshop. In 2000, the State of Iowa named him its first Poet Laureate.
