"It always excites the poetry-lover to discover a new voice — and this first collection by a novelist and literary journalist is distinguished by a true lyrical gift."

It always excites the poetry-lover to discover a new voice — and this first collection by a novelist and literary journalist is distinguished by a true lyrical gift... Whether he mourns the death of a beloved dog or works through the terror of a cancer scare, Gardner demonstrates a technical control of mood that can nudge you to tears. He takes the two great themes of love and death and intersperses them with exquisite evocations of nature. Above all, his poems celebrating married love set the spirit soaring, reminding us that long love makes memory permanent, defying mortality.
