About the Author

Eamon James McEneaney was born on December 23, 1954. While attending the high school in Elmont, New York, he developed into the talented lacrosse player. He led Cornell University to NCAA lacrosse championships in 1976 and 1977 and was named First Team All-American 1975-1977. He was also NCAA Division I Player of the Year in 1977 and Ivy League Player of the Year in 1975 and 1977, and he was a member of the U.S. World Team in 1978. In 1993 he was inducted into the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

Upon graduating from Cornell, McEneaney coached lacrosse at Syracuse before going to work on Wall Street. He eventually rose to the position of vice president of Cantor Fitzgerald, a bond trading firm. He began writing poetry in high school and continued working with words throughout college and his Wall Street career. When the World Trade Center was bombed on February 26, 1993, McEneaney led 60 panicked coworkers from the 105th floor down the dark and smoke-filled stairwell to safety. McEneaney lost his life in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 while at work on the 105th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

Joseph Harris is the Francis Lee Higginson Professor of English Literature and Professor of Folklore at Harvard University. Susan E. Deskis is Associate Professor of English at Northern Illinois University. Thomas D. Hill is Professor of English and Medieval Studies at Cornell University.

This is an amazing book. It truely allows the reader to reconnect with their spirituality. It's incredible that so many poems--both beautiful and disturbing--seem to reconfirm the basis for the premonitions, prior to 9/11, that Eamon McEneaney had. It gives me faith that there is more beyond this life. This collection of poems is a wonderful gift for us all. A must read for content and reflection.

This is an amazing book of poetry. Eamon was poetry in motion on the lacrosse field and a wonderful wordsmith off, a true poet-warrior. this book will take you to coney island, the nyc subway and the last moments of an icicle's life. you will laugh, cry and be moved spiritually. Do not miss this one as the initial printing is limited.

Eamon J. McEneaney's life was cut short at the World Trade Center on 9/11 but this collection of his poems shows that he took in much of this world while he was here and gifted us with a lifetime of poems to cherish.
