The Truth About Mangoes is the fourth book of poetry by award-winning poet Jim McGarrah. Sixty new poems explore the difference between the ways we see the world we live in and and the way the world is. These poems take the reader along for the ride with grit and humor. 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.
