Item description for Distant Early Warning by Rad Smith...

Intimate moments saved and savored abound in these affecting, observant poems by the late Rad Smith. It is not his untimely death, however, that brings this volume to light, but his undeniable talent. An inquisitive soul with an engaging mind, his poems persuade us to pay more attention every day and reap the rewards.

Rad Smith, born in 1947, grew up in Minnesota and attended Harvard University, where he studied with Elizabeth Bishop. He worked in high-tech for 15 years, then abandoned that to become a stay-at-home dad and write poetry. In 1998, he learned he was in the final stages of lung cancer, although he never smoked. Working feverishly, he finished this manuscript before he died in December of that year.

Reviews - What do customers think about Distant Early Warning?

A Marvelous Eye  Sep 12, 2006
Whether capturing the peace of a Zen garden or gazing up through the hole punched in his house by a meterorite, the poet has me tasting the very small and the infinitely large. There's great humor ("The Bat" is a wonderful set-to of a yuppster household up-ended and all but evacuated by a flying mouse) and great irony ("Scientists Now Believe"), much of it flowing from Rad Smith's knowledge that his time on earth was fast coming to an end. The poems look like his attempt to savor it all for eternity; they also give us the chance to do so under less imminent conditions.
