The Vagabond Press issued a new edition of Lives, Lucas Hunt's first collection of poetry, in the winter of 2012. The original edition was published in 2006, and sold out. Lives is a rich aesthetic experience; full of humor, heart and spirit. It reflects a world in which action is directly responsible for earthly fortunes, and where people laugh even as they struggle to find happiness. Lives is about how ordinary and profound things work together, how our dreams conflict with despair and death. It is a celebration of human passion, and the desire to say something true.
