Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A son is born too early, as if coming up over the horizon before his own dawn. An elderly father lingers at life’s other horizon.

About the Author

Robin Behn is the author of two previous collections of poetry, Paper Bird and The Red Hour, and co-editor of The Practice of Poetry: Writing Exercises from Poets Who Teach. She directs the M.F.A. Program in Creative Writing at the University of Alabama.
