Poetry from Mid-America, or perhaps slightly to the East. "If nothing stirs your soul, eat this book with a tall Bloody Mary." That quote is from her polymath son Jan Hodges. You can see Joan as she preferred to be known peeping behind a lightpost in her beloved Torquay
The writings of E. J. Howe approach the reader, like a
feather brushing, just behind the right ear. Smooth,
with sensations of vague remembrance, strange
familiarity and promised terminations. . .all just a guise for an ice pick.
Macabre, mysterious and often politically incorrect, her
poems delve into the probable, and clearly define the
human condition, as she allows us to feel each line, as
if it were stolen from a personal diary from so far ago.
Turn off a few lights and read Joan's works.
j. Newcombe. Hodges
