Description

Poetry. Floyd Skloot's fourth book of poetry is his most poignant and tender collection, and his most passionate. This volume follows on the heels of his intensly interesting, soul stirring memoir about living with brain disease, IN THE SHADOW OF MEMORY. These new poems explore some of that territory with eloquence and sheer primal power, while other poems describe the aspects of his life that-- despite his daunting challenges-- approximate paradise. Those discovering him for the first time will find themselves in the hands of a master, described by HARVARD REVIEW as "a poet of sigular skill and subtle intelligence."
