The Truth About Mangoes (Out of Print)


by Jim McGarrah

This is the fourth book of poetry by award-winning poet McGarrah. Sixty new poems explore the difference between the ways we see the world we live in and and the way the world is, taking the reader along for  the gritty, funny ride. From a dead coyote on an Arizona highway to a monologue from the ghost of Hunter S. Thompson, the language mesmerizes and the observations fill us with empathy for our fellow humans.

Order from any bookstore, local or online. This title is also available from Fleur Fine Books of Galveston, Texas.
