"Just Between Us touches that sweet spot between poet and writer with its palpable appreciation of the many facets of the lives we are given to lead. Reading Just Between Us releases endorphins that allow us to embrace our own lives with an extra burst of energy, strength, and joy."
—Merrily Weisbord, author of The Love Queen of Malabar

"McElroy has a sharp sense of humor and whimsy. . . . Offers rewards on each page rendered in brief handfuls of words."
—The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner


Just Between Us is a celebration of the vivid human connections that occur when traveling through some of the world’s most stirring landscapes. David McElroy, a former pilot, transports us from the Arctic to the tropics, over rural and urban lands, and even into the landscape of dreams. Throughout his verse is a sense of longing and the desire for intimacy, showing that despite our diverse lives, we are all driven to share our existences with one another.

David McElroy is a retired commercial pilot of small planes in the Arctic and a former smokejumper, fisherman, taxi driver, and English teacher. He is the author of three books of poetry—Making It Simple, Mark Making, and Just Between Us—and has been published in regional and national journals such as Alaska Quarterly Review, Cirque, Anteaus, Poetry Northwest, and Chicago Review. In 2016 he was the recipient of the Andy Hope award for poetry.
