Boston’s NPR news station, WBUR 93.9FM, recently asked a few book experts about their choices for the Best Books of 2016, and included picks by Lexington’s own Ron Davis. Ron Davis, one of the owners of Wild Fig Books & Coffee, recommended Christopher McCurry‘s Nearly Perfect Photograph (Two of Cups Press, 2016) and even read a poem from the collection!
Ron describes Christopher’s book as “hilarious and profound”, calling Christopher a “very good writer”. You can find the recording by clicking here. Ron Davis begins at around 9m18s and he talks about Christopher McCurry at the 17m50s mark.
Ron Davis owns Wild Fig Books & Coffee with Crystal Wilkinson, author of the novel The Birds of Opulence (University Press of Kentucky, 2016). Ron Davis sometimes goes by the pseudonym “upfromsumdirt” and is the author of the poetry collection Caul & Response (Argus House Press, 2015).
