 Book Description

Publication Date: June 23, 2008

Winner of the John Ciardi Prize for Poetry, selected by Mark Jarman. These poems invent their own forms, with two series of voices (of people, animals, things) portraying a world of peace with varied multicultural and international connections. The shock of 9/11 opens the final section, which relates private experience to wider social healing and the ideal of one world.
