Poetry. ORDINARY LIES is the first collection of fine poems by Robert J. Duffy, a poet-plumber from New Hampshire. "Robert J. Duffy must have listened, from a very early age, to readings from Homer, the Psalms of David, the Song of Songs, Spenser, Milton, Shakespeare. He is imprinted with our great language's flights and furies and it pours forth from him like a force of nature. Like John Donne, he asks his own questions, not used ones, and makes up and tries out his own answers, too"--Jean Pedrick.
