Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Autobiographical Essays. These touching and intimate essays reveal the integrity of Hayden Carruth — one of the most solitary, esteemed, and controversial poets of this century. Despite his wide erudition, he has lived largely outside academia. These essays chronicle a lifetime of wrestling with his personal demons and muses; time spent hospitalized for severe chronic depression; a passionate love of jazz and blues; his suicide attempt; and most of all, his uncommon, unflinching honesty.

Synopsis:

Intellectually engaged, uncompromisingly honest essays by author of National Book Award winner Scrambled Eggs and Whiskey.
