Overview

"Best Books" National Poetry Book of the Year (finalist) and containing poems that have won national recognition including the Eppie award for Best Poetry, Milford Fine Arts Council National Poetry Contest, Writers Challenge, Faulkner Society Poetry Award, Oberon Prize, Pagan Poetry Contest, Saturday Writers One Page Poetry Contest, and the Baltimore Science Fiction Convention Poetry Prize. "In Roetzheim's poems one senses a broad intelligence in conversation with itself: sober, worldly, both tender and weary, measuring itself against a lifetime of experience and revised expectations. Whether ruminating on old love, performing a surgical character sketch, or journeying through space, time and literature, Roetzheim manages to reach under the detritus of an ordinary life to share with the reader the uneasy truce of feeling alive." -Larry Weisman. "This book.comes across as very real, the characters elicit empathy because the reader can identify with the situations. Frost's poems had that same quality, like you were sitting at his kitchen table listening to him over coffee. I got that same feeling reading this book." -Gene Auprey
