Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first collection of poetry by noted travel writer Lawrence Millman.

"Tent Dwellers—Okak, Labrador"

Inside this licheny ring of stones that once held down a sealskin tent, I pitch my own domed aquamarine tent and then quickly crawl inside to escape an ice pellet shower, whereupon I see a couple of my predecessors squatting dim and hazy, Dorset People with cuprous, epicanthic faces, scrapers of skin, tellers of tales, diviners of the weather, who stare at this pallid specimen from a distant age in his nylon-lined apparel, astonished that he somehow survived and they did not.

Lawrence Millman is the author of eight other books (most recently An Evening among Headhunters) and hundreds of essays, short stories, and poems published in hundreds of magazines, as well as the editor of several anthologies.

Synopsis:

The first collection of poetry by noted travel writer Lawrence Millman.

Synopsis:

Poetry. Cultural Writing. NORTHERN LATITUDES can be read as a lyric record of Millman's travels through the North from 1975 - 1999. Millman's prose poems abound with unforgettable stories about boreal ghosts and death ships, cannibals and lovers...With great humor, reverence, and wisdom, NORTHERN LATITUDES is both a celebration of, and an elegy for, a special part of this world that will, sadly, soon exist only in the pages of this magnificent book — Howard Frank Mosher. NORTHERN LATITUDES takes us far from our ordinary geographical concerns and is resonantly individual. It is a beautiful voyage into relative 'terra incognita' — Jim Harrison.
