What struck me most reading George Polley’s books,Grandfather and the Raven and The
Old Man and the Monkeyare their ability to relocate the reader
geographically without dislocating him culturally or intellectually.The placeis maybeJapanbut the moral of the stories are to be applied
everywhere, and on everyone.
Mychildren read both booksand enjoyed them immensely. They appreciated
the sense of adventure, readability and the uniqueness of the style. I
appreciated their subtle moral...

I have several books that I keep by my desk; these are my "working" books, books I dip into for pleasure and inspiration as I write. Freya Manfred's poetry collection Swimming With a Hundred Year Old Snapping Turtle is one of them. Each time I pick it up, I find something new, some new depth of vision that I had missed before that makes me sit back and wonder "How did I not see this? How could I possibly have missed it?"
I'm an author, fiction writer and poet. My recent publications are "The Old Man and The Monkey" and "Grandfather and the Raven", both published by Night Publishing (UK); a collection of short stories, "Fernandez' Tale and Other Stories", and a poetry collection "Seeing: Collected Poems, 1973-1999", published by Tortoise & Hare, both out of print. I love telling stories, so drop by from time to time for updates.
My publisher is Taylor Street Publishing in San Francisco, California.
