Backyard Alchemy

Deft humor and poetic wisdom combine into a transformative book of poetry by Utah author Lance Larsen. Offering golden glimpses of ordinary moments, Backyard Alchemy prompted poet and American Book Award winner Jim Barnes to write: “This book may save your life. You will learn something you will need to know with each poem you read.” This is Larsen’s third book, and his second with the University of Tampa Press, which published In All Their Animal Brilliance in 2005 as winner of the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry.
