"Young has always stood out for his sharp humor, boundless poetic energy, and sheer readability. If adventurous poetry can sometimes feel like a tenuous tightrope walk, Young's poems feel more like zip lines."—The Boston Globe"This book reads like a long, breathless thank-you for life's seemingly random jumble of beauty, strangeness, tenderness, and joy."—Los Angeles TimesFall Higheris a major collection by one of America's most inventive and entertaining writers. In this paperback release, Dean Young's work contends with the challenges of love, wryly cataloging mistakes, deterioration, and broken vows. Young's humor is as sharp as ever, and coupled with a vulnerability that rendersFall Higherhis most intimate collection to date."The True Apology Takes Years"The true apology takes years.Terrible dry eyes!The tree rings grow closer and closer togetherbut the nail is swallowed.Great heaps of rubble are moved up and down the shore.Finally a dance is performed to complete the forgiveness,stamping out small fires,the whole palladium decorated with thistleslike the last twenty pages of a Victorian novel.Now that your hunger is gone you're welcome to the banquet . . .Dean Younghas published twelve books of poetry, including finalists for the Pulitzer Prize and Griffin Award. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the NEA, as well as an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He teaches at the University of Texas and lives in Austin, Texas.
