Raised somewhere between the tobacco fields and horse farms of Woodford County, Kentucky, JUDE McPHERSON has been bending and stretching syllables as long as he can remember. A member of the Affrilachian Poets, his first full length collection of poetry ‘on my mind’ is a reflection of his eclectic personality. He has published two previous collections of poetry through blacoetry press; loves taxicab blues revisited (1998) and the book of jude (2000).
