Spotlight on Alaska Books: The Creatures at the Absolute Bottom of the Sea by Rosemary McGuire

49 Writers - Tue, 08/18/2015 - 5:00am

Long after dark, they got the last crab pot strapped down. Jim climbed over the load checking the lashings that held the stack, though it was dark already, the deck slick with sleet and more rain falling on the wind that rolled in off the Bering Sea. The lights of town pricked through the night. The red and blue lights of the Unisea Bar. Music drifted over the water, from where the big crabbers lay rafted up. “Season ain’t even open for three days,” his deckhand said. What was his name? They all looked much the same in their greasy sweatshirts and fatty bodies, the permanent deckhands of the world. He never hired the good ones, the workers or the college kids. He got the ones the other men rejected, dumber than a box of smashed assholes. (from “The Creatures at the Absolute Bottom of the Sea,” Rosemary McGuire) In Rosemary McGuire’s new story collection, a man witnesses a tragic accident that calls his own life into question. A young woman meets her high school sweetheart after many years and seeks to make sense of the separate paths they’ve taken. A soldier home from Iraq tries to rebuild his life in a remote Alaskan village.
These are fishing stories, told as such stories are meant to be: simple, often coarse, and tinged with the elemental beauty of the sea. They reflect rugged lives lived on the edge of the ocean’s borders, where grief and grace ride the same waves. McGuire, a fisherman herself, captures the essential humanity at the heart of each tale. No one comes through unscathed, but all retain a sense of hope and belief in earthly miracles, however humble. A dazzling debut, The Creatures at the Absolute Bottom of the Sea will leave readers with a sense of the fragility and beauty inherent in eroded lives spent in proximity to danger."Make way for a terrific new voice from Alaska!  Rosemary McGuire’s short fictions are as authentic as they come—drawn from a life steeped in rural Alaska and commercial fishing, deeply imagined.  Her language is luminous, and her characters—rough, innocent, tragic, fully human—are unforgettable.”--Nancy Lord, former Alaska Writer Laureate and author of FishcampBeluga Days, and The Man Who Swam with BeaversRosemary McGuire was born and raised in coastal Alaska. She has worked there as a commercial fisherman for fifteen years, and has also worked in Antarctica and in field camps across Alaska. “The Creatures at the Bottom of the Sea” is her first collection of short stories. It can be purchased through the University of Alaska Press, www.alaska.edu/uapress, or at www.amazon.com.

At Least One Kidney

What Turtle Blood Tastes Like - Tue, 08/11/2015 - 5:46pm

a token
or two
scavenged from
the wild

gone feral
friday
night

two hours
pacing dark
tide creeping
beach bisected
by creeks
ribbons of
black ice

come
morning
a whole
frozen liver
at least one
kidney
on the
rug

saturday
sickday
deer fur
hide
signs
of what’s
to come

monday
i know
a leash could
prevent this
the hours
wondering
what will
be brought back
if he will
even come
back

lunacy
the wild one
nearly feral
for so long

he always
comes back
this time
with a four
point buck

its head
at least
frozen tongue
sticking out
of ice clenched jaw

the dog
i share the bed
with sometimes
gnawing
spinal column
pearls
ribbons
of nerve
and thawed
flesh

i put
the dog
inside
take up
the heavy
coal shovel
and with the
toe of my
boot, rock
the death
head into
the shovel’s flat blade
go to the garage
and dump
it in the bottom
of the trash
can

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
