ABOUT THIS BOOK

Steve Straight's skillfully crafted poems cover a wide range of topics—love, marriage, family, work, and class issues. Not since E. A. Robinson has anyone captured the essence of the New England town with such keen observation. What gives this volume its distinctive voice is a Buddhist calm, tinged with irony and humor. Steve Straight touches the ordinary things of life with a magical whimsy and a delightful self-deprecating humor.
