Editorial Reviews


Ghost Diary offers us a chronicle of the struggle to live deeply in both inner and outer worlds. -- Cecilia Woloch, personal letter, December, 2002

Lee Rossi's gift is calling up a time and place so that is shimmers and breathes in the present. -- Eloise Klein Healy, personal letter, December, 2002.

Rollicking, bemused and rueful--at times shocking, even hopeful, this is American poetry you can feel patriotic about. -- Tony Hoagland, personal letter, December, 2002.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
These fine free verses move at the interfacings of spirit and sex, experience and innocence, aware self and remembered or imagined other, everything the singing starts. They speak of closeness that is a kind of loss, of loss that is a kind of closeness. I like their immediacy and intelligence and acute sense of lodgment in time and place.
