There's a blank page, and on that page, waiting to be born, is the opening sentence. It's a writer’s greatest torment and seduction. For Jack Driscoll, it’s irresistible. He’s the author of eleven books of poetry, novels, and short stories. His new story collection, The Goat Fish and the Lover’s Knot (Wayne State University Press, April 2017), was no different. It's a work of love of, sometimes a struggle with, the craft of writing, sometimes with a muse on fire.
