“In Late Summer Storm in Early Winter, exquisite poetry by Peter Weltner and startling images by Galen Garwood engage in an ineffable dialogue that ranges between the echoing call of the distant past and the intimate whisper of the mythological present. Here the radiant beauty of the body and the savage reach of hunger and fear collide, whether in the sanctity of love, in dream’s unspeakable truth, or in memory’s sweet fragility. We are reminded of failure’s clarity and victory’s cloudy future, as narrative imagery plays out in finely crafted, musical lines. These poems and images witness the unknown flowing at the edge of exactitude, and in burning resolve, before darkness and light overcome us, they reveal history means again.”

~ William O’Daly

author of The Road To Isla Negra and translator of Pablo Neruda
