Synopses & Reviews
Well-known in the Pacific Northwest for his diverse writing talents, Skloot has crafted another book that will be as highly praised as his others. The beautifully crafted poems in this collection probe the depths of extended illness, of love, of perseverance in the face of disaster, of the healing power of music and of art. The Evening Lightilluminates the importance of the things that give us strength.
