In celebration of the poet Jonathan Greene turning 70, this volume gathers verse from the preceding fifteen years of his writing and includes poems never before published or previously appearing only in very limited editions.
"...his concerns - nature, mortality, love, politics, art, memory, loss - are large, and the cumulative effect is what only the best art can give us, our very existence altered, enriched" Ron Rash
"Jonathan Greene is the real thing. The reader is in for an extraordinary symphony of pleasure and insight." Julia Alvarez
"These finely distilled poems show us the way without getting in the way - worth holding on to for a long, long time!" John Brandi
