A Pulitzer Prize-winning author details an unconsummated love affair that sustains political, philosophical, and sexual interest over a lifetime.

The truth is always different
from what anyone says out loud,
but who really cares? Not I, said the man
I chose to be, nor I nor I nor I—
among the many of us she left teetering.

Stephen Dunn is a Pulitzer Prize winner and the author of seventeen collections of poetry, most recently Lines of Defense, Here and Now, and What Goes On: Selected & New Poems: 1995-2009. He teaches at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

Review:


"The poetry here the story here, the dynamic here does what no other art form really can. It gives voice (in this case a voice in the plain style) to feeling and mood, to interiority, and the fragile ways we construct relationships out of private desires and public lies . The theme of naming is a theme about power, identity, shape-shifting, the fragmented self. All that is here. And all this is good enough reason to cherish this little book, its short glimpse into another's life, which, when rendered in poetry like Dunn's, becomes our life, too."
