“Humphrey is poetry’s best kept secret!” –Kurt Vonnegut
James Humphrey’s 16th poetry collection, In Pursuit of Honor, was written April through August 1999. In this book he bravely confronts in clear, frank language, the destruction of his true destiny, brutal child abuse, and overcoming both. Humphrey shatters the surface of accepted reality and gives us a new reality.
“Being an athlete grown old is one of the cruelest of fates.” –Charles Bukowski
