Richard Jones has written a magical book that sings of daily joys and the transcendent sorrows. In tune with unexpected harmonies in our lives, THE MINOR KEY exudes a sense of strangeness and eccentricity but possesses a clarity of vision that recasts and revises the world as we know it, often with redemptive power. Jones plumbs memory and heart with characteristic tenderness and storytelling ability, bringing us to understandings with the apparent ease that comes only from a mastery of the craft. This book is a significant addition to his many poetry collections, which include APROPOS OF NOTHING (Copper Canyon Press, 2006), STRANGER ON EARTH (Copper Canyon Press, 2006), AVALON (Green Linden Press, 2020), and The Blessing: New and Selected Poems.
