Editorial Reviews

Review

"These are poems of memory; in them the past is revived in exact and painfully loving detail. We have seen and heard much of it before and it does not seem to matter: rarely has the pity of it all been so poignantly expressed, and in a style appropriately both flat and lyrical. The book holds the kind of experience you could make a movie out of, not a big box-office hit but a satisfying small family drama and of course I mean this as praise." (Donald Justice)
