Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this tenth collection, Stephen Dunn turns his "wise, well-practiced eye" () on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies. Not content merely to observe the world, Dunn's stance is always dual, complicit. And as he navigates through each paradox of his moral and aesthetic and erotic selves, this poet, described by Sydney Lea as one "who remains open to contradictions," travels to a place of exact and complicated vision.

Synopsis:
