Poetry. A refreshingly accessible collection of narrative poetry describing the love, violence, and fragility of men's lives. Beginning with young adventures on Long Island, the characters take their passions for animals, moons, water and women to lives in Indiana, South Dakota, Japan and China. Li-Young Lee writes: "Henry Hughes has had a very complete encounter with the sayable sum of his experiences. The writing is gorgeous and masterful."
