New for 2011: To Befriend a Fox

January 1, 2011

The late Richard Pearce was a poet’s poet. The content of his work runs the gamut — one minute meditating on the paintings of Edward Hopper, the next playfully recalling a time he made “sidewalk angels” in wet cement. Yet Pearce also had a dark side, as chronicled in much of his later work. Though by no means “complete,” To Befriend a Fox represents the first time a good portion of Pearce’s poetry has been collected in a single anthology.

“That the man could work a crowd with the ease of a standup comic concealed, or at least mitigated, the pain inherent in much of his work. He was a performer, but, more than that, he was a poet — one who loved his audience and wanted nothing more than to connect on the most human of levels.” — Marc Schuster
