“The more you transform your life from the material to the spiritual domain, the less you become afraid of death.” Leo Tolstoy spoke these words, and they became Henry Stuart’s raison d’etre. The Poet of Tolstoy Park is the unforgettable novel based on the true story of Henry Stuart’s life, which was reclaimed from his doctor’s belief that he would not live another year. Henry responds to the news by slogging home barefoot in the rain. It’s 1925. The place: Canyon County, Idaho. Henry is sixty-seven, a retired professor and a widower who has been told a warmer climate would make the end more tolerable. San Diego would be a good choice. Instead, Henry chose Fairhope, Alabama, a town with utopian ideals and a haven for strong-minded individualists. Upton Sinclair, Sherwood Anderson, and Clarence Darrow were among its inhabitants. Henry bought his own ten acres of piney woods outside Fairhope. Before dying, underscored by the writings of his beloved Tolstoy, Henry could begin to “perfect the soul awarded him” and rest in the faith that he, and all people, would succeed, “even if it took eons.” Human existence, Henry believed, continues in a perfect circle unmarred by flaws of personality, irrespective of blood and possessions and rank, and separate from organized religion. In Alabama, until his final breath, he would chase these high ideas. But first, Henry had to answer up for leaving Idaho. Henry’s dearest friend and intellectual sparring partner, Pastor Will Webb, and Henry’s two adult sons, Thomas and Harvey, were baffled and angry that he would abandon them and move to the Deep South, living in a barn there while he built a round house of handmade concrete blocks. His new neighbors were perplexed by his eccentric behavior as well. On the coldest day of winter he was barefoot, a philosopher and poet with ideas and words to share with anyone who would listen. And, mysteriously, his “last few months” became years. He had gone looking for a place to learn lessons in dying, and, studiously advanced to claim a vigorous new life. The Poet of Tolstoy Park is a moving and irresistible story, a guidebook of the mind and spirit that lays hold of the heart. Henry Stuart points the way through life’s puzzles for all of us, becoming in this timeless tale a character of such dimension that he seems more alive now than ever. From the Hardcover edition.

By the author of Diverse Modes and Reduced Reflections, this volume consists of three anthologies spanning a range of poetic styles. Sun and Rain follows the style and philosophy of the great Romantic poets, extolling the wonders and terrors of nature and the exploring the depths of human emotion. The author paints vivid and moving pictures that are swept along by the lyrical meter and rhyme of traditional verse. The Flowery Country is an exploration of the currents of history that shaped the venerable Chinese culture. However, unlike traditional history, which is dry and dispassionate, this work resonates with emotion, ideas and imagination. Written in a new literary style developed by the author called "amorphous verse", which does not differ from prose in terms of style but retains the lyricism of poetry in terms of language, the Flowery Country propels the reader through the colourful sweep of emperors, dynasties, love and war, leaving him to ponder the vicissitude of human nature. Grains of Sand is a study of human nature and the creations of humankind expressed in verse. The horrors of war, the tenderness of love, the joy of cherished memories are juxtaposed with small, keenly observed gems of everyday life and objects, which, like a photograph, are forever caught in time by the pen of the poet.
