The Haiku Year
Michael Stipe, Douglas A. Martin, Grant Lee PhillipsISBN: 1932360166;
Seven friends made a pact to write haikus every day for a year as a way to keep in touch with each other. The result is The Haiku Year. Michael Stipe's entries recall his twilight-drenched lyrics for R.E.M. Douglas Martin's spare, elegantprose illuminates the hidden corners of life while Grant Lee Phillips thoughtful storytelling is pared down to the simplest language. Hinting at the transcendence and banality of everyday life, the short verses signify an appreciation for small moments of beauty and ultimately urge readers to let these realizations pierce through the numbness of their daily routines. Photographs are included.
