Basho Has Left the Building is a collection of haibun and graphic haibun by Colin Stewart Jones with an introduction by Jane Reichhold and back page blurb by Penny Harter:
This is a strong collection of haibun, exhibiting gritty power as Jones explores innovative formats, ranging from stream-of-consciousness to incorporating original art which often functions as visual haiku to accompany the prose. His subjects include thought-provoking political and historical commentary; relived childhood memories; expressions of personal despair, frustration, and confusion; and even tender and sorrowful love poems. His prose descriptions often read like prose-poems, and the incorporated haiku startle with their absolute rightness. I highly recommend Basho Has Left the Building. In these haibun, Colin Stewart Jones has left Basho’s neighborhood as he takes us into the 21st century of haibun.
—Penny Harter, co-author (with William J. Higginson) of The Haiku Handbook, and of Recycling Starlight, The Night Marsh, and the forthcoming prizewinning e-book of haibun, One Bowl.
