About the Author

Brian Doyle is the editor of Portland Magazine. He lives in Portland, Oregon.


Brian Doyle's writing is driven by his passion for the human, touchable, daily life, and equally for the untouchable mystery of all else. His poems, beautifully, cross and re-cross this difference, and his gratitude, his sweet lyrical reaching, is a gift to us all. -- Mary Oliver
Brian Doyle's poems are truly wonderful: wise, playful, funny, acute, and sometimes poignant observations dealing with family, friends, nature, history, and language itself. But what is most remarkable about them is the good feeling that follows from having read them, as if you yourself have been seen by this fine poet, and been absolved. -- Ron Hansen, author of Exiles
The subtitle is somewhat misleading, as this is a collection of delightfully evocative prose poems, some of which do read like stories, often written in a stream-of-consciousness manner. * The Christian Century *
