Book Description:

'Jim Harrison has probed the breadth of human appetites for food and drink, for art, for sex, for violence and, most significantly, for the great twin engines of love and death. Perhaps no American writer better appreciates those myriad drives; since the publication of his first collection of poetry . . . Harrison has become their poet laureate.' Salon.com

In Jim Harrison's new book of poems, birds and humans converse, biographies are fluid, and unknown gods flutter just out of sight. In terrains real and imagined from remote canyons and anonymous thickets in the American West to secret basements in World War II Europe Harrison calls his readers to live fully in a world where 'Death steals everything except our stories.' In Search of Small Gods is an urgent and imaginative book one filled with 'the spore of the gods.'

Maybe the problem is that I got involved with the wrong crowd of gods when I was seven. At first they weren't harmful and only showed themselves as fish, birds, especially herons and loons, turtles, a bobcat and a small bear, but not deer and rabbits who only offered themselves as food. And maybe I spent too much time inside the water of lakes and rivers. Underwater seemed like the safest church I could go to . . .

Jim Harrison is the author of thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including Legends of the Fall and Shape of the Journey. A long time resident of Michigan, he now lives in Montana and Arizona.
