..".a highly enjoyable debut novel." - Kirkus Review It's the year
of 1976 at the Davenport Summer Retreat for Artists, and fifty-nine
year old Arthur Honeyman-lothario, vagabond, carpenter, and, above
all, renowned versifier-has his hands full: carrying on
simultaneous affairs with two poetesses, composing his first
manuscript of poems in years, and vacillating between making
contact with his estranged son, Pablo, or just letting him be.
Along the way, Honeyman's conviction that there are two kinds of
people-"those who hold onto things, and those who get on with
things"-will be put to the test, and he'll finally have to decide
which one he wants to be. Inhabited by restless, searching people,
Year of the Poets segues between northern Michigan, Mexico City,
and points beyond. Set in the not-so-distant past of Cold War
politics, typewriters, rotary phones, and handwritten missives,
it's a story about the push and pull of kith and kin, as well as
the burdens of sentimentality, memory, and denial that weigh upon
