Format: Hardcover
Keen in their social observation, at times bluntly personal, full of slow builds and quick stabs, these poems are rich in what Randall Jarrell called "the ordinariness of life; what people do; where people go; the ways of life." Their real subject is the education-in-progress of the soul, always a stranger, and the bemused, inquiring witness of narration itself.-Tony Hoagland
