These peaceful and gently beautiful poems are a heady ceramic cup of mint tea handed to you by a loved one, as they wrap themselves around your carriage.
–Nathaniel Riverhorse Nakadate ~ Adventure journalist, waterman, & environmental filmmaker
What I Know [How to Do] is a luminous journey through landscape and memory. Garrigan’s svelte verse, elegant craft, and vivid imagery are constant companions throughout this collection; his epiphanies are rooted in the ephemera of the natural world and the subtleties of human interaction. Intensely personal, yet wildly accessible, What I Know [How to Do] feels both organic and purpose-driven. Few poets can transport and challenge readers the way Garrigan can, and this collection is satisfying on every level.
–Jason Splichal, Founder and Co-Editor of Sky Island Journal.
Michael Garrigan’s What I Know [How to Do] is a series of section hikes during which sage life advice and hot coffee are provided. And as in all worthwhile poetry, the reader has to get a little mud on their boots. My feelings about his collection can be summed up in Garrigan’s own words, “it has a voice and an influence if you let it hold you just for a little.”
–Lannie Stabile, Managing Editor of Barren Magazine
