Book Description

May 1 2011
Campfire Radio Rhapsody is Windsor poet Robert Earl Stewart’s follow-up to his acclaimed, Lampert Award–nominated debut, Something Burned Along the Southern Border. The humour that many readers found in that first collection takes a turn for the darker here, but the poems are livelier than ever. Campfire Radio Rhapsody features shadowy trains, a cab-driving opera singer, a multi-armed mollusk, and a mass exodus of clowns. From the epic “The Country Reporter” (Stewart edits a small-town newspaper) to the rash of startling poems of just half a dozen lines, this is a book by a writer who is digging more deeply into himself and struggling to find his place in a turbulent world with eruptions of beauty and the absurd.

Product Details

Product Description


“Robert Earl Stewart’s Campfire Radio Rhapsody misses nothing. Cunning and bold, this collection exists in the tender dark space between tooth and claw. An exceptionally adroit storyteller, Stewart calmly walks us into the eye of the impending storm with uncommon grace. He writes the way the rest of us wish we lived: fearless and searching.” (Dani Couture, author of Good Meat and Sweet)

I opened it to a random page and read the following, and I was hooked.

What song did your mother sing to you
she would ask the dying in the hospice,
days or hours before the end.
