I have reached a point where long reads, novels, fiction or nonfiction, just don’t work for me anymore. I can do short stories, but poetry is what really can capture my attention.
Went to my favorite bookstore two weekends ago and saw this title, and couldn’t resist picking it up. One of the best I’ve come across in a while. Rita Dove is well known, was the poet laureate, but I had never read her stuff before. I know I will return to it, because it needs to be read more than once.
You wanted to know, Scott, so there you go. As my one commenter, you should have your request honored.
