Richly inspired by their subjects, the poems of this collection speak of everything from geographic locations, family photographs, nature, art, and literature - unified by unexpected imagery and a narrational intimacy that is startlingly inclusive. Many of the poems are responses, in which myth and fairy tale become as real as the everyday, and the ordinary is embellished with fantastical metaphor. The 48 poems in this collection imbue the emotions of memory, such as regret and melancholy, with a calm restraint that adds to the depth in their meaning and demonstrates the masterly writing of the poet.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A volume of wonderful fits and starts: well-built narratives are suddenly interrupted by a cryptic epithalamion. Short lines ease into spacious distances and big, ambling-paced arguments. An epigram suddenly grows a long neck and becomes an elegy. A lyric shears off into a one-line ending . . . . There is real verve, real invention and, above all, true craft . . . showing what the reader most wants--a poet certain of the craft, a writer certain of what the craft is there to do." --Eavan Boland, poet and English professor, Stanford University
