Synopsis: Poetry. Italian-American. Sexual Abuse. "Peter Covino's first book is spacious, wonderfully unpredictable, and insistent on ambition and scope. CUT OFF THE EARS OF WINTER is not simply an autobiography but a poetic autobiography. It moves from the confessional--stories of the body and the family--to stories of the mind, art, and history. Especially compelling is the way in which the intimate biographies of flesh and family are entwined with and inextricable from matters of art and history... Restless, worldly, intelligent, and beautiful, CUT OFF THE EARS OF WINTER is an utterly original first work"--Lynn Emanuel.

From the Inside Flap: "So many of these poems make it their job to get around experience, to get it all in, to comprehend it. So often, in what Covino calls "a love letter for our lifetime," they cannot contend, however intrepid, with such totality—"a closure that resists us"—and it is at such points (or periods) that I hear this new poet’s particular note. When he asks, "How can we explain the pieces of detail, vanishing," then I hear Covino’s special lacrimae rerum note. It is new to me and noble." —Richard Howard
