For my money, all of the John Wells books are about as intelligently written as contemporary action/spy thrillers get. (One could ask for more, but more can be difficult to stumble across. The plots are cleverly conceived, the action taut and escalating, and Wells himself is the lethal, smart, and honorable hero that every desk-bound working schlub might dream to become in another life.

Perchance, Sir John, you may solve the riddle some day,and by way of Kirkstall: though it were not best to work sacrilege. Mother Church is holy with us yet awhile, and must needs be handledtenderly.

Comments:

Tori Texer
Wills has been praised for having brought a more natural, home-grown quality to haiku writing in America. I can identify with some of his efforts but several others in this book fall flat.
JOIN
Wills joined the North American haiku scene in 1968, during a time of transition away from the early orthodoxies of the movement. Wills himself became one of the first haijin to write a sparer type of haiku, liberated from 5-7-5 syllabic structure and the traditions of western typography. This collection, published in 1987, contains nearly all his best published work. Wills' background was in lit (PhD from Washington University in St. Louis, taught at university level for many years). After spending time studying haiku in Japan on a research grant, he left academia and lived as a subsistence farmer, an experience that probably helped give his work its pure, focused, supremely uncluttered quality. Along with Robert Spiess, he's perhaps the most persuasive and observant naturalist among North American haijin, his haiku inspiration deriving almost exclusively from the American wilderness. He's capable of magnificent compression--

boulders
just beneath the boat
it's dawn

--which juxtaposes the four classical elements of earth, water, air, and fire and documents a classic haiku moment of transition (with a hint of menace) in just nine syllables.

Elsewhere we find pointed humor:

keep out sign
but the violets keep on
going

Unforgettable images:

mule
dragging dawn
across the ridge

(clearly modeled on Virgilio's "bass/picking bugs/off the moon", the poem that first turned Wills onto haiku)

And self-deprecation in his appropriately rare personal cameos:

the footpath narrows
laurel branches take me
by the sleeve

Wills experimented with single-line haiku, meter, portmanteau words, and expressive typography, notably the use of tabs to indicate silence, space, and elapsed time. His work, both in terms of content and technique, remains a great inspiration to haijin everywhere.
Survivors
This is a wonderful book that demonstrates how well the haiku form can work in English. It has a distinctly American feel but the same concentration as in the great Japanese poets. Truly exceptional.
Tehn
As a Japanese poet myself, I was largely influenced and moved by his being and works. His haiku restored my relationship with nature and the grace of life. The beautiful discovery of the essence and the tresurable secret in ordinary life.
