Stargazing at Noon

Whether between points of lights in the sky or the freckles on a lover’s skin, Amanda Torroni’s poetry finds the beautiful patterns in the material of life. 

In this collection, Amanda Torroni expands on her previously published chapbook, Stargazing at Noon, adding over seventy poems and brand-new material. Torroni writes about intimacy, distance, the body, self-doubt, nostalgia, and love—both lost and found. Her poems weave disparate source material into beautiful metaphor; readers are as likely to find Plato and neurological terminology as they are moonlit lovers and broken hearts.
