About the Author
As a distinguished director, Ted Kotcheff needs no introduction. His canon of work includes a wide range of genres from films such as FUN WITH DICK AND JANE and WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S to the dark poetry of WAKE IN FRIGHT. Two of his films have been named Cannes classics, receiving the ultimate accolade of the film making world. In a parallel incarnation, in fulfillment of a lifelong dream, Ted Kotcheff made his debut on the literary stage in 2011 with the publication of THE COLLECTED POEMS. His second published volume exhibits the same extraordinary vividness and vigor that permeates the first, whether the subject be grief at his Father's death, his youthful friendship with pro wrestler Sky Hi Lee, his chat with a turkey vulture, or the mystery of the disappearing honey bee.
