      A European towel warmer hints at indulgent rub downs in the marble bathroom, rich with sumptuous art-glass sink, twinkling beveled mirrors, and flattering, romantic light. Elsewhere it is tougher going: for example, in the poem "After Lee Miller's Exploding Hand", how to make sense of "Do not touch that which is rumoured to prolong suffering. The incident that sets the plot in motion is the murder of a would-be robber by Beam Sheetmire. Get involved If you have read The Marble Orchard, add your review to the book page and have a say in the final selection. As the narrative weaves itself to life, along with it come a host of characters somehow both familiar and alien to the Appalachian setting where Taylor has placed them. Dark days are now upon, my wife now is dead I look at the future and shudder with dread.

      The people he meets during his journey--an enigmatic trucker dressed in a suit, a cemetery-dwelling Good Samaritan, an armless brothel owner--are pieces of a puzzle that hold the key to Beam's past, as well as his possible future salvation. Days and nights in the rough — slow healing that has to be kept in hiding from ever-present threats — Taylor draws these true enough to smell and taste and leave a reader gasping. Someone will come to the landing and flag down the ferry. The body it crumbles, as grace and vigor depart, There is now a stone, where I once had a heart. He had a great influence on me.

      A sifting of material, a little water with the wine and putting aside of some poems for later collections might have helped in assembling a more reader-friendly tome. Paul Johnson explores the impact the ghosts of the past have on both memory and the present. It offers you enchanting views of the nearby Herbfarm Restaurant and Kitchen Gardens. Overstuffed chairs and couches invite you to settle in and relax by the fire with music and a book.
