His poems render historys chance larder of the consecrated and profane from which we ransom our fate. Often improvisational and always lyrical, Steins poems move effortlessly through the art of Beckmann and Degas, the music of Bob Marley and garage bands, and the pathos of cancer patients, factory workers, and victims of bigotry. Insightful and refreshingly unaffected, Chance Ransom explores the shifting shore between self and other with clarity and compassion.
