A new collection from a poet long recognized for her "unfailing mastery of her medium" ( New York Times ).

Linda Pastan meditates on themes of aging and memory, language and art in this moving collection, where she travels from the Thanksgiving table, a "palimpsest / with traces of the past / showing through," to Japan, where she dreams in haiku. "Pastan . . . expresses a full range of the possibilities and potencies of the human, feminine voice" ( Boston Globe ).

from "In the Forest"
The trees are lit
from within like Sabbath candles
before they are snuffed out.
Autumn is such a Jewish season,
the whole minor key of it.
Hear how the wind trembles
through the branches, vibrato
as notes of cello music.
