WINNER OF THE 2018 MONTANA BOOK AWARDChris La Tray's One-Sentence Journal is a collection of short poems and essays that describe his encounters with the wilderness of day-to-day life: In mountains, rivers, and forest paths in some moments, and gritty alleys and street corners in others. Deeply inspired by the communication shared between writers Ted Kooser and Jim Harrison in their classic book Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry (Copper Canyon Press, 2003), La Tray seeks a similar correspondence here, with anyone who cares to slow down and relax in his company.
