    Of the remarkable people I have been lucky enough to know, Bob Lax had a special magnetism He was one of the great poets of his generation yet no great poet was less a self promoter Much like a desert monk, he fled from the spotlight His last hiding place was the Greek island of Patmos That so much of his work was published in his lifetime is due not to Lax seeking public notice as to admirers of his work putting it into print via small presses Steve Georgiou s new book, In the Beginning was Love, is the latest case in point Georgiou has created a beautifully assembled patchwork quilt of Lax s writing plus an outstanding introduction to Lax s life and work For those new to Lax, this is an excellent starting point Those who already treasure Lax will appreciate the selections and their ordering.
