Now shipping: Selected Poems by John Farris

Cimarron Street Books is pleased to bring you the selected poems of award-winning author John Farris.

The photo of John Farris (at age 21) on the cover of Selected Poems was taken in May of 1958, three weeks before his graduation from Southwestern at Memphis (now Rhodes College) and four weeks after the sale of his novel Harrison High, which became a multi-million copy best-seller, establishing a successful dual career for Mr. Farris as a novelist and writer-producer-director of films.

In its scope, ambition, and achievement, this volume of 158 selected poems illuminates an astonishing third career of the prolific author, of which nothing was known until now.

Of his poetry, Mr. Farris writes, “I realize that many poets would rather be accused of tax evasion or spousal abuse than to be considered other than ‘very serious artists.’ High seriousness will always have its place in poetry. But it isn’t beneath us to be entertaining while examining, subversively perhaps, certainly with a satirical eye, the social and political mores of the age in which we live.
