The Dark Time of Angels by Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, Pier Giorgio Cicco

In The Dark Time of Angels, Pier Giorgio Di Cicco continues the exploration of spiritual themes that he began in the critically acclaimed The Honeymoon Wilderness, which Michael Redhill in The Globe and Mail called, 'a startling and beautiful work.' Personal yet universal, Di Cicco's poetry is marked by a lyricism that is unflinching in the face of chaos and contradiction. In a world of suffering, he identifies faith in the oddest places and joy in the smallest things. The Dark Time of Angels is a powerful testament of hope, by one of our finest writers.
