About Books:

Title: An Accident Practiced
Author: Kenneth P. Gurney

Description: In Gurney's forth collection his poetry reveals influences by poets Jane Mead and Shiela Spargur. He uses fictitional characters like Delphi, Annie, Ellie and Larka in an attempt to make the muse seem real enough, and he easily succeeds. The title poem, which begins the collection, gives two examples of just how easy everyday accidents can happen, and seems to set a kind of theme for the rest of over one hundred poems, many of which having been published previously in journals, anthologies, calendars, and magazines. If a theme of accidents and missteps runs through the work, so does man's relationship with nature, that uncontrollable element that brings thunder and then rain, quenching the wildfires, over earth that sprouts the new seeds, even if all that grows is tumbleweed. - Maurice Oliver
