The Lost Poemsby Terry McDonell
Wyoming (The Lost Poems) introduces a sharp new voice that rings true in image and narrative, from the boomtowns of Wyoming to the after-hours clubs of downtown Manhattan.
Wyoming (The Lost Poems) is a run of poems written and put away in the 1970s. It is the work of a writer who began as a student of poetry but who became a journalist, novelist, and screenwriter. None of the poems have been published previously or submitted anywhere for publication.
It is a collection of exploding imagination and acute observation. Love, sex, betrayal, redemption . . . tossed like dice on uniquely American landscapes. With the first poem you wonder where Terry McDonell has been; by the last you are shocked by his answers.
Praise for California Bloodstock:
“The twisted truth about where California came from . . . a rare original piece of work.” —Hunter S. Thompson
“Califorina Bloodstock is most stylisly composed, in the cool, nihilistic matter of Joan Didion and Thomas McGuane.” —Edward Abbey
“California Bloodstock is an oyster of a book, salty and delicious; a pearl-handled, silver-barreled derringer of a book, elegant and snappy; a medicine rattle of a book, mystic and a little spooky. I was sickened, delighted, and very impressed.” —Tom Robbins
