The Car That Brought You Here Still Runs: Revisiting the Northwest Towns of Richard Hugo.

Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2010. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine unread copy in a Fine Dust Jacket. The poet Richard Hugo visited places and wrote about them. He wrote about Northwest towns: White Center and La Push in Washington; Wallace and Cataldo in Idaho; Milltown, Philipsburg, and Butte in Montana. Part travelogue, part memoir, part literary scholarship, The Car That Brought You Here Still Runs traces the journey of Frances McCue and photographer Mary Randlett to the towns that inspired many of Richard Hugo's poems. Returning forty years after Hugo visited these places, and bringing with her a deep knowledge of Hugo and her own poetic sensibility, McCue maps Hugo's poems back onto the places that triggered them. Together with twenty-three poems by Hugo, McCue's essays and Randlett's photographs offer a fresh view of Hugo's Northwest. Item #27391
