I love the "found poems" in this delightful, visually appealing, coffee-table book. Jonathan Williams (1929-2008) was born in Asheville and actually dropped out of Princeton to attend Black Mountain College! He was an out-of-the-closet gay man at a time when that was uncommon in the mountains of North Carolina. His work as a photographer and graphic artist as well as a poet shows in this amazing book. He lived most of his adult life in Scaly Mountain, North Carolina, between Highlands and the Georgia line. He founded the Jargon Press.
