Staff Reviews

One of the most acclaimed poets of his generation -- brilliant, graceful, probing, and generous -- Palmer's latest book is my favorite poetry book of the year. Intimately philosophical, his poems speak to the intelligent heart, and are jewels of contemplation. Formal sensitivity, expansive cultural depth, and precise articulations toward the ineffable and essentially transitory make these poems tender and powerful, honest and elusive. This is a book to read slowly and to read again, each time getting you closer to what you can never definitively close on. Palmer is a master writing at the height of his art, don't miss it! -- John Evans
