The new book by Leslie Adrienne Miller, whose poems "are delightfully eclectic, learned and wise" (Ted Kooser)
"If the face is a christening in flesh, "
"""the boy of him is its opposite, "
"""raising the tent of bones in which"
"""he will harbor all the starry anomalies"
"""that a knowledge of God cannot undo."
“Leslie Adrienne Miller knows extraordinary secrets and tells them with searing clarity—about how love is a necessity, a comfort, an itch and an ache, the nexus where hope and fear and the image of the self and the world come together, or (more often) fail to.” —Rosellen Brown
