Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this ruminative, endlessly clever book, Pulitzer Prize–winner Hass turns his eye toward nature, love, and even drone strikes, as…images of his Northern California environs shimmer with life…Hass experiments with form, vacillating between long and short lines, stanzas and long unbroken blocks of verse…Hass is a rarity, a poet’s poet and a reader’s poet who, with this newest endeavor, bestows a precious gift to his audience.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
