Reviews

"Gregory Orr's new book is dazzling and timeless [and] focus is so unwaveringly aimed toward the transcendent--not God, but the beloved--that we seem to slip into a less cluttered time. It's an experience usually reserved for reading the ancients, and clearly that was partly Orr's inspiration."--Editor's Choice, Virginia Quarterly Review "[A] confident, mystical, expansive project, whose very clear short poems constitute a meditation and ritual for grieving a lost beloved." --Publishers Weekly
