A highly anticipated collection from one of the most powerful voices at work in America today.
Combining sensitivity and eloquence with a broad appeal, Li-Young Lee walks in the footsteps of Stanley Kunitz and Billy Collins as one of the United States’s most beloved poets. Playful, erotic, at times mysterious, his work describes the immanent value of everyday experience. Straightforward language and simple narratives become gateways to the most powerful formulations of beauty, wisdom, and divine love.

Lee, winner of many poetry awards, was born in Indonesia to Chinese parents. These poems run the gamut, exploring his late father's Christian experience, his parents' love, the refugee/immigrant experience, love, family, words, and longing. Both easy to read and subtle.
