About the Author

Richard Grossman was born in Lubbock, Texas. The son of a Chevrolet dealer, he was raised in Minneapolis and then attended Stanford University, from which he graduated with a degree in English literature. After a time spent living overseas in France, Israel, and Morocco, he returned to Minneapolis in 1967 where he worked as a high-level executive at Gelco, a multinational financial services company. He left the corporate world in 1976 in order to dedicate his time to writing. For the past two decades he has been concentrating on a trilogy entitled American Letters. Its first two volumes, The Alphabet Man, describing hell, and The Book of Lazarus, describing purgatory, were published by FC2 in 1993 and 1997, respectively. The trilogy's final installment, Breeze Avenue, a three-million-page work on heaven, is scheduled for publication in late 2013. Thirty-seven books from the trilogy will be published between 2011 and 2015.

This edition of The Animals is absolutely gorgeous. It is a work of art. But more importantly, the writing is beyond beautiful. I love each and every poem. The relationship between the animals and the shepherd, to me, is a metaphor for God and his creatures, and how each of us on this earth has a purpose we often do not understand, but is important, nonetheless. These poems take me to a spiritual place, and has me contemplating the complexities of our world and our relationship to a higher power. I love The Animals!
