Description

The new book by Leslie Adrienne Miller, whose poems "are delightfully eclectic, learned and wise" (Ted Kooser)

If the face is a christening in flesh,
the boy of him is its opposite,
raising the tent of bones in which
he will harbor all the starry anomalies
that a knowledge of God cannot undo.
--from "Y"

Y is poet Leslie Adrienne Miller's book of the looming child, the son, the cipher, the letter for which a math problem seeks a solution. Collaging lyric investigation, personal reflection, and hard research into psychology and childhood development, Miller describes motherhood with a broad-ranging intelligence, a fierce humor, and an elegant, emotive poetic line.
