The sadness is incompletely covered over with wit, even silliness (I'm thinking of the sections in which his penis becomes a character, Dick, with its own very insistent voice), but Keeler never loses sight of his seriousness of purpose (the power of words and the healing power of fish fishing-though he might disagree)and never lost at least this reader's interest.
Trash Fish is a hoot and a treasure -- like landing a prehistoric lunker from that hastily man-made lake somewhere west of town. His searing honesty and gut-splittingly funny ruminations will reel you in like a Tail Dancer #5 hooked to the lip of a 5" perch.
Greg was my creative writing teacher in 1980. He was an endearingly awkward, untenured professor in those days who indulged a few of us upstarts by reading poetry side-by-side with us at the now defunct Union Hall Coffee House on Main Street. Greg's poems were ridiculously superior to the self-absorbed, half-baked drivel the rest of us dished up, but Greg treated us like comrades-in-words.
