Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A co-winner of the 1993 Iowa Poetry Prize.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In this second wise and passionate book, Tom Andrews explores illness as a major theme, avoiding sentimentality without being merely confessional.  He advances his considerable talent with great strength and forcefulness.  The poems ae buoyant with humor and mindful of larger mysteries even as they investigate very personal issues.  There is an urgency that is compelling; the work is immersed in the private grief of the speaker without excluding the reader.  There is real and hard-won wisdom and intelligence in the poems, offering genuine surprises and delight; their attractive humility is not a pose.
