Description
"It is time to celebrate the singular beauty and power of Stanley Moss's poetry. He is a citizen of the world, both past and present, one who seems to have been everywhere and missed nothing. These are poems, out of the fullness of life, that impress me as being all at once deep, strange, loving, bountiful, and a joy to read.... The damp genius of mortality presides." - Stanley Kunitz.
