A heart- felt, plain- spoken distillation in poetry of Henderson’s lifelong struggle to maintain his faith.

The Family Bible is Henderson’s first collection of poetry and a rare statement of this pilgrim’s journey.  His 67 poems are both personal and universal.  They are funny, bitter, eloquent, tortured, touching, wise, blasphemous, and reverent.  From Genesis to Revelation, this is the Bible that we all recognize and debate and love.

About the Author

Bill Henderson is the founder and editor of the Pushcart Prize. He received the 2006 National Book Critic Circle’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Poets & Writers / Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award. He is also the author of several memoirs, including All My Dogs: A Life. The founder of the Lead Pencil Club, Henderson lives on Long Island and In Maine where he runs the Pushcart bookstore – “the world’s smallest bookstore.”

Established in 1994, the Black Mountain Press is dedicated to promoting work of emerging authors of literary poetry, novels and short stories. As cinema, art and story telling has plummeted in literary quality to appeal to the lowest common denominator in recent years, the Black Mountain Press strives to find and publish works that aspire to a higher ideal, many times written by unknown, first time authors, without agents representing them.
