In this collection of poems spanning thirty years of work, Dennis Trudell writes about the dense humanity of cities; about Chicago, basketball, an inner-city fire; about Vietnam and Central America; about sons and parents. Above all, he writes about the humility and humanity we gain from recognizing our ties to all our fellow sojourners on this earth, noticing that strangers and neighbors are often brave and resilient and lovely beyond reason. Inspired by such writers as Nelson Algren and Pablo Neruda, Trudell sees reason for hope and humor in a radical stance toward grim realities of the world.
