Item description for Approximately Paradise by Floyd Skloot...

Floyd Skloot's fourth book of poetry is his most poignant and tender collection, and his most passionate. This volume follows on the heels of his intensely interesting, soul-stirring memoir about living with brain disease, In the Shadow of Memory. These new poems explore some of that territory with eloquence and sheer primal power, while other poems describe the aspects of his life that-despite his daunting challenges-approximate paradise. Those discovering him for the first time will find themselves in the hands of a master, described by the Harvard Review as "a poet of singular skill and subtle intelligence."

Floyd Skloot's memoir, In the Shadow of Memory, won the 2004 Pen Center USA Literary Award, and the Chicago Tribune named it one of the Best Books of 2003. His acclaimed and award-winning poetry has been published in Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Magazine, Poetry, and countless other magazines and journals, as well as being widely anthologized. He lives in Amity, Oregon, with his wife, the artist Beverly Hallberg.
