This collection consists at its core of a sequence of poems that speak to the loss of the writer's brother to suicide. These poems stun us by their restraint and simplicity, and by their astonishment that this life, so important to so many, could be extinguished in such a manner. Harrison's poems are impeccably crafted and move through narrative seamlessly--dry, naive, vulnerable, always accessible.
