Overview


Poetry. Italian-American. Sexual Abuse. "Peter Covino's first book is spacious, wonderfully unpredictable, and insistent on ambition and scope. CUT OFF THE EARS OF WINTER is not simply an autobiography but a poetic autobiography. It moves from the confessional--stories of the body and the family--to stories of the mind, art, and history.

Restless, worldly, intelligent, and beautiful, CUT OFF THE EARS OF WINTER is an utterly original first work"--Lynn Emanuel.
