Synopses & Reviews
Suzanne Cleary writes poems of lyric clarity and narrative complexity, those in her first book Keeping Time described by Billy Collins as "strung together by daring chains of association." This new collection explores work and art and time and faith, wild and serious poems that somehow manage to be great fun.
