In THREE MILES FROM LUCKEY, David Shevin displays a hard-earned wonder at the world. Full of wry humor and surprise, these poems make us laugh where it hurts. Shevin revels in the odd ironies and juxtapositions and out-and-out absurdities of this screwed-up world. He merges the personal and political with a jazzy twinkle in his eye. We need his wise, compassionate voice-Jim Daniels. "The poems glitter with gorgeous words for plants and animals, with Hebrew phrases, with names of Biblical prophets, with Hispanic names of people and places, and with the vernacular of rural Ohio. Like th poetry of William Blake, Shevin's narrative abhors the devastation wreaked by post-industrial capitalism. It does so less through depiction of injustice than through the recounting of small pieces of luck" -Edwina Pendarvis.
