Carruth, Hayden. Scrambled Eggs & Whiskey. Copper Canyon Press, Port Townsend, WA, 1996. There were some gems in this collection. However, I found the overall volume disappointing. Carruth's poems were too self-indulgent for my tastes.

Entertaining, engaging, and accessable while still betraying a surprising depth. This is a poetry collection I'd recommend to all readers of poetry, beginning or otherwise. It's humor is catching, and the work is both graceful and inspiring. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
