Description

Campfire Radio Rhapsody is Windsor poet Robert Earl Stewart's follow-up to his acclaimed, Lampert AwardÐnominated debut, Something Burned Along the Southern Border. The humour that many readers found in that first collection takes a turn for the darker here, but the poems are livelier than ever. Campfire Radio Rhapsody features shadowy trains, a cab-driving opera singer, a multi-armed mollusk, and a mass exodus of clowns. From the epic 'The Country Reporter' (Stewart edits a small-town newspaper) to the rash of startling poems of just half a dozen lines, this is a book by a writer who is digging more deeply into himself and struggling to find his place in a turbulent world with eruptions of beauty and the absurd.

About the Author

Robert Stewart

ROBERT SCOTT STEWART is a Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Cape Breton University. He has published widely in applied philosophy and philosophy and literature. With Laurie Shrage, he is currently writing a text, Philosophizing About Sex, to be published by Broadview Press in 2012. He is also editing another book for CBU Press, Let's Talk About Sex: A Multidisciplinary Discussion, to be published in 2013. For four months in the fall of 2008, he taught for Semester at Sea, a program sponsored by the University of Virginia, which teaches over 700 university students per voyage while sailing round the world. During the trip, he ate more buffet-style cafeteria meals aboard ship than he cares to remember, but he also got to sample some wonderful food in eleven different countries and take a few cooking classes along the way.

Editorial Review

Robert Earl Stewart's Campfire Radio Rhapsody misses nothing. Cunning and bold, this collection exists in the tender dark space between tooth and claw. An exceptionally adroit storyteller, Stewart calmly walks us into the eye of the impending storm with uncommon grace. He writes the way the rest of us wish we lived: fearless and searching.Ó (Dani Couture, author of Good Meat and Sweet)
