Synopses & Reviews
"Stephen Dunn is one of the strongest voices of his generation. His poems wonderfully encapsulate daily experience. They are modest without being small. They include us without being patronizing. They are rich in their craft without being decorative. Not only does one come to care deeply about them, but they are a pleasure to read." Stephen Dobyns
" affirms what we are capable of in our best moments--grace, tenderness, love--while acknowledging that the human heart can be merciless. It's a book of great breadth."--Gregory Djanikian,
