Description

Nicholas Christopher's newest collection displays both his trademark mastery of language and astonishing range. In elegaic verses of surpassing beauty we are taken from the lush islands of Hawaii to the streets of Greenwich Village after midnight to a sparsely attended Las Vegas funeral. Whether he is describing items lost and found or a woman drowning in a stormy sea, Christopher's verse is filled with moments of spiritual illumination that confirm his reputation as one of the most important magic realist poets writing today.
