In The Margins





“Important things take place in the seams and margins of life.”

In this new book of poetry, Gary K. Olson’s keen observations of life’s intimate moments, large and small, come to life with keen wit and emotional grace. These poems open up the deep issues of life and the beauty of the natural world with startling simplicity.

“Gary Olson’s poetry sings with the rhythm of life, the thought and feeling of being deeply alive. He writes as a master of the metaphor so that as one reads of ordinary things something truly extraordinary is revealed.  The beauty of the earth, the wonder of growing, the ecstasy of love for the young and the older, the haunting specter of death, the fledging faith for the final

future—all this is his territory, traversed with humor, humility and great passion.  He writes of a
Drummer, at times heard distinctly and then more faintly as one steps into the surprise of a
new day.  There’s a theology here, rooted in the classic themes of Christian faith and revealed
vividly in the ordinariness and wonder of existence.”

I have published several books, and publishing with Bill Huff was by far the most satisfying book publishing experience I've had. He makes a real effort to balance the author's gifts with the needs of the target audience. His suggestions for product development are well-founded and offered in a dignified manner. His assistance was outstanding at every stage of the process.
