Christian Wiman is an acclaimed poet (Every Riven Thing) and the editor of the prestigious Poetry magazine, but he is also a frail human who for years struggled with a rare, aggressive cancer that threatened to kill him. In the throes of chemo and other painful treatments, he actually strengthened his previously sometimes faltering sense of faith. In My Bright Abyss, he writes about "all the difficult bliss of this life that I have been given" and the radical, inviolable innocence of truth. Essays that are both artfully poetic and nakedly poignant. Editor's recommendation.
