Jim Christy

The Big Thirst
and Other Doggone Poems
previousnext Ekstasis Editions

The poetry in this collection covers plenty of ground: to the ends of the earth and back again. The poems range from righteous honkytonk to religious mysticism. It's like Hank Williams is in the backseat of the Caddy converible picking out a tune while Francois Villon offers him lyrics. Christy can soften you up with a joke and a kind word then the dog bites and the knife slips in. The Big Thirst takes a great big gulp of nectar and blood, joys and vicissitudes, all of it stirred with a big stick of awe.

The Big Thirst is Jim Christy’s 32nd published book. He continues to explore the earth as well as the ways and doings of women and men. He is also an artist who has exhibited in many countries. His songs have been recorded by singers in Canada, Europe and elsewhere.
