Book Description Red Hen Press, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cruising at Sixty to Seventy is the second book from award-winning poet Jim Tilley. In three sectionsDear Wife, Dear Self, Dear Friendsthe speaker, a physicist and mathematician by education, now retired from a career on Wall Street, reflects on everyday experience, finding grace and drama in life s smaller moments. As in Tilley s debut collection, In Confidence, many poems use ideas, problems, and puzzles from physics and mathematics to explore personal relationships, such as Particle and Wave, in which a fundamental concept from quantum mechanics becomes a metaphor for the ripples and collisions on the fabric of family life. The book ends with a personal essay, The Elegant Solution (originally published as a Ploughshares Solo), about Tilley s relationship with his father based on the language of mathematics.
