Getting to Gardisky Lake: Poems by Paul J. Willis
Stephen F. Austin University Press, 2016. $17.00
The poems in Getting to Gardisky Lake are remarkable in their amplitude and reach. Here, ranging between parking lots and high meadows, vaulting decades, naming names, are all the pleasures of Willis’s nimble wit, fresh metaphors, and weather eye for the sacred in the commonplace. – Catherine Abbey Hodges.
Paul J. Willis is professor of English at Westmont College, and a former Poet Lauriate of Santa Barbara.
William Trevor was born in Ireland, but lived much of his life in England. His novels and short stories concerned the lives of ordinary people. To quote the New York Times, “His plots often unfolded in Irish or English villages whose inhabitants, most of them hanging on to the bottom rung of the lower middle class, waged unequal battle with capricious fate.” (Read the full NYT obituary here.)
