Join me in an evening contemplating the romance of mud during a reception and reading from Susan The Magazine — The Intertidal Issue. My eccentric essay collection explores the physics and metaphysics of paddlesport. Spanning more than a decade of lyrical writing, topics range widely from the “autobiography” of a unicellular organism to reflections on success or failure in kayak racing. This slim volume contains no accounts of harrowing first descents or adventurous continental circumnavigations but it does reflect overgrown calluses, broken fingernails, and broken boats. Illustrations include photography by Petaluman Bruce Cohn and Eel River denizen June Ruckman Albright.
