About the Author
John Freeman is the founder of Freeman's, the literary annual of new writing, and executive editor at Alfred A. Knopf. The author and editor of ten books, his work includes the poetry collection Maps and the book-length essay Dictionary of the Undoing, as well as several anthologies: among them are Tales of Two Americas, a volume on inequality in America, Tales of Two Planets, which examines the climate crisis globally, and There's a Revolution Outside, My Love, co-edited by Tracy K. Smith, an intimate portrait of the U.S. on the cusp of revolution, climate crisis and the upheavals of a pandemic. He teaches at NYU.
"A fine collection of spare, somber lyrics from an important figure in contemporary writing; with this volume, Freeman steps forward for merited attention as a poet in his own right." --Library Journal, starred review
"Perfect to take with you to your local park bench come spring, or whenever you need to recover a little humanity." --Literary Hub
"Atmospheric... These meditative poems offer a thoughtful exploration on the contradictions and connections formed in public spaces." --Publishers Weekly
"Freeman deftly stages his urbane poems of rumination over, even celebration of, the complexities of life... Delight and humor abound... There is wistfulness in these poems, though they never become mired in shadows of what is lost or gone." --Booklist
