Intense and pristine lyrics by a poet living in the age of AIDS. He takes his subject head-on without a shred of sentimentality or self-pity. In spite of its difficult subject, this is not a dark book. Gregory Orr has said of Donnelly that "everything he writes is suffused with tenderness and intelligence, lucidity and courage." This is Donnelly's first book.
