"Jones writes brief, simple poems about isolated incidents while gracefully alluding to the complex relationships underlying them." --Publishers Weekly

"Skillful, direct, and surprisingly delicate." --The Village Voice

"A poet of uncommon perceptual gifts." --Library Journal

Richard Jones's prodigious volume travels the wide arc of a lifetime in Proustian detail. He remembers a peripatetic upbringing, travels to London and Paris, separation from and reunion with his wife in the Italian countryside, morning tea with his daughter and trail runs with his sons, flights with a pioneering aviator father and conversations with a deaf mother. "Impossible task, staying alive," Jones writes, and yet a perspicacious examination of the life we have lived yields clarity and enrichment. Finding poetry in what went before, Stranger on Earth opens the door to what Proust calls "those dwelling-places deep within us that we would not have known how to enter."

Richard Jones has published eleven books of poetry and his poems have been featured on NPR's "All Things Considered." He is the founder and editor of Poetry East, and he teaches at DePaul University in Chicago, where he lives with his family.
