This is the first edition of one of the most highly praised and touching collections of poems to appear in recent years. In selecting it for the National Poetry Series, Philip Levine said: "The courage of this book is that it looks away from nothing: the miracle is that wherever it looks it finds poetry. . . . Mark Doty is a maker of big, risky, fearless poems in which ordinary human experience becomes music." Mark Doty, the recipient of a 1994 Whiting Writers' Award, is the author of two previous books of poetry, Turtle, Swan and Bethlehem in Broad Daylight. Awards: Winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize, 1995. Winner of a Whiting Writers' Award, 1994. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. Finalist, National Book Award, 1993. Winner of the L.A. Times Book Award in Poetry.

As a poet, Levine has been preoccupied with domestic and modern urban life, loneliness, and love. His poetry is somber, reflective, and restrained; his language simple and direct. His take on the modern world is dark and unsentimental. Born in Detroit, Levine has taught writing at a number of universities, including Berkeley, Princeton, and Columbia. Levine was appointed the Library of Congress 18th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry for 2011-2012.
