Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Deeply felt and brimming with humor and philosophical inquiry, Sporadic Troubleshooting, the latest volume from Clarence Major, both acknowledges poetic literary tradition and explores exciting new territories in language. Throughout, Major uses an improvisational technique, applying it to well-known mythological stories to enhance narrative and lyrical intensity. Breathtakingly vivid, these poems are testaments to universal subjects such as love, charity, nature, fear, survival, loyalty, justice, and beauty. Major's poems offer vigorous inquiries into life and art with a view toward renewal and transformation.
