Pressestimmen"It's difficult to choose a single poem from this marvelous book ... so many are radiant creations, virtuoso rhapsodies capable of transforming ordinary despair into something dazzling, like a flock of butterflies turning in sunlight." -- Rita Dove, Poet's Choice, Washington Post Book World "Doty is at the height of his powers in these beautiful and important poems."--Diann Blakely Shoaf, Harvard Review "Doty's poems elegize the past and ready us for future grief, focusing intensely on the anticipated death of his lover from AIDS."--Tony Whedon, Poetry East "An understated, unflinching look at life in the face of death. The poems are as courageously elegant as the achievement is grand."--from the National Book Critics Circle Citation "You'll read it again and again, and you will not lend it out as much as you give it."--Alexander Chee, San Francisco Review of Books "Though AIDS is a pervasive metaphor, the crystalline sensibility and breathtaking beauty of these poems is redemptive."--Marjorie Lewellyn Marks, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Doty is at the height of his powers in these beautiful and important poems."--Diann Blakely Shoaf, Harvard Review
