Years Later

“These are poems about romantic love and its difficulties, the misconnections and distances that exist between husbands and wives, lovers in middle age, even after their years of intimacy. The book as a whole gives shape to this interior landscape of separation and solitariness, making it, perhaps, as significant and palpable as that other great landscape of togetherness and joy. Though the poems arrive in different guises, the collection reads like a single narrative, a history of many lives converging into one that is oftentimes ours.” — Carnegie Mellon
