Praise for Jack Ridle’s feature on Writer’s Almanac
Today my wife woke/rustled me awake turning on the radio for the first of her daily favorite programs–Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac […] and I was stunned by the quality of the poem by someone I’d never heard of, Jack Ridl, published by CavanKerry.
I have quite an ostrich-like approach to life in this world, and tend to be pinheaded for ease of sand burial. Ridl is an extremely impressive guy, and doesn’t bury his head in the sand, works hard at what he does, and truly accomplishes transparent iron–as remote from my preferred smoke, mirrors, ashes, with sloppy dashes of molten lava, as anyone could imagine.
I’m going to order his book and congratulate you, Joan and CavanKerry for publishing Jack Ridl. It’s wonderful to be so bestirred and revived, and for this I wanted to thank both of you.
