BRUSSELS - Oct. 1, 2018 - PRLog -- Best known for his performance poetry, Earl LeClaire's observations on the human condition take many forms. In Night Taxi he absorbs us with glimpses into the lives of his passengers. The work is by turns, extremely funny, and very troubling as he celebrates the quirky, and the genuine in people, while describing the destructive effects of those who use addiction, whether to money, power, sex, or drugs, to get them through. In very sharp language that has a vibrant urgency, LeClaire takes us on a high-spirited ride that shows us the view out the driver's window rather than from the back seat.

Earl LeClaire, poet and raconteur, has worked at a myriad of jobs including, fisherman, lobsterman, nuclear piping designer, historical researcher, cab driver, and chef. He has been writing poetry, fiction, and non-fiction since 1971. He has published poetry, fiction and food articles in many small press and major magazines in the USA and Europe. Earl was awarded first place in the Aquillrelle Poetry Contest 2 for the poem, "Below the Mayonnaise Factory". He is the author of two cookbooks, Cove Creek Farm.Org's Old Timey Appalachian Good Foods and Game Cookbook and Old Swamper's Shellfish and Clambake Cookbook. His book of vignettes, Night Taxi, is currently out of print. His first book of poetry, Below the Mayonnaise Factory, is available through Catawba Press. Earl, 70, lives in the still rugged and beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina half a mile from the Tennessee Line. Deliverance, he is quick to remind you, was a product of the late James Dickey's sometimes strange and twisted mind. However, he says, if you hear banjo music, paddle faster.
