Overview

These sixteen essays concern pedagogy, poetry, and Wasp culture: the rules and secrets, the joys and tribulations of belonging. At the heart of these lyrical investigations are the bond between father and son, the weight of expectation and disappointment, and the paralysis of privilege. In his first collection, winner of the First Series Award for Creative Nonfiction, Michael Milburn offers a blessing of patience to his readers. May we do as he has done, may we outlive our youthful indifference to what we are taught by others and embrace our capacity to think for ourselves.
