Publisher's summary

Riverscapes is Basil's fourth poetry collection, a versed memoir, that frames the poet’s life as if within the journey of a river from its headwaters to its delta. It begins in his native Greece and moves forward to his second home in America. These poems navigate through the poet's heritage and his life - a journey that spans a lifetime of memories, loss, regrets, joys, awareness, and acceptance of what is.

Rouskas, the imbedded correspondent in his own life, creates textured emotional centers with clarity of form and energy of expression. Rich in narrative and description, the poems are powered by feeling and a clear, accessible style.

Poetry Read by the Wanderer Himself

Listening to Riverscapes is a bit like hearing Odysseus recite his own adventures. Rather than a return from Troy, this is a voyage from Greece to America, and from the Eastern shores of America to the West. But, more than places, it is a story of family, of friends, and lovers, told with humor and sincerity. You can taste the feta and retsina, feel the repression of the Greek government and the excited activism of the students, experience the pain of a father and son who love but can't reconcile, share the joy of a child's crystal radio.. It's the stuff of life, made real by the author's deeply felt reading.
