About the book:

In his first book of poems since the death of his wife, the gifted poet Jane Kenyon, Hall reviews his life, considering and re-casting scenes that have haunted him. These include his great-uncle's hands, "white as Wonder bread," a ruined Halloween, and T.S. Eliot's advice to young Hall, newly arrived at Oxford: "Have you any long underwear?" It is Kenyon's death, though, that Hall is moving toward. His simple lines speak worlds about grief's searing intensity.
