Author Signing: Stephen Page says
Join Pages Bookshop as we welcome Poet Stephen Page back to Detroit from Argentina! Stephen will read and sign copies from new book, "A Ranch Bordering the Salty River."

"Half Frost, half Hemingway, Stephen Page tells a gripping tale in verse of a rancher disenchanted with the details of administering land, its livestock, and its unreliable laborers, only to be called by the mythic lure of the nearby Wood and the amorphous deity that emerges to encounter him. The writing here is clean and lovely and permanent, which is rare in storytelling and rarer still in poetry."

– Rustin Larson, author of The Philosopher Savant
