The back cover sleeve stated that the author is thirty years old and "has ben writing since he was seven year old, when the Richmond Times Dispatch published his first poem. In between reading everything in sight as he grew up, he milked cows, slopped hogs, caught possums and paid his tuition at the University of Richmond by working as a dispatcher for a trucking company, mail carrier and census taker."
