Book of My Nights / Edition 1

In Book of My Nights, Li-Young Lee once again gives us lyrical poetry that fuses memory, family, culture and history. In language as simple and powerful as the human muscle, these poems work individually and as a full- sequence meditation on the vulnerability of humanity. Now one of the world's most-acclaimed young poets, Mr. Lee has received numerous honors and awards. His poems have been translated into more than a dozen languages.

Author Biography: With the publication of Rose (the 1986 Delmore Schwartz Poetry Award), Li-Young Lee burst into the American literary scene. He followed that astonishing book with The City in Which I Love You. Mr. Lee has appeared on National Public Radio a number of times and The Power of the Word, the PBS television series with Bill Moyers.
