    Westport Point Poems

    This paperback book by Richard Dey, a former commercial fisherman and resident here, spans some four decades and includes poems based on offshore lobstering and swordfishing out of Westport Point as well as on sailing a Beetle Cat on the Westport River. Many of the poems were first published in magazines ranging from Poetry to Sail. In endorsing the book, Westport resident and former editor of The New York Times Book Review Charles McGrath says, “He writes with a sturdy New England eloquence and makes poetry from what many of us take for granted: this sandy, rocky coast; the changeable offshore waters; the stubborn, deep-souled people who live and work here.”  Proceeds from the sale of the book have been generously donated to WRWA.
