In this new collection, Wesley McNair offers his fullest vision of human life, both its hardships and its rich possibilities. Opening with poems about growing up with family conflict in a New England of broken farms and towns, McNair explores the limits of personal wishes and American dreams. Here too are haunting encounters with ghost selves, the dead, and the gangsters in old movies; lighter fare such as a poem about the poignant hopefulness of comb-overs; and a transcendent series of lyrics that celebrate self-acceptance and the spiritual dimension of 'life on the ground'.

Praised by Maxine Kumin as 'a master craftsman' and by Philip Levine as a poet with 'a profound love and understanding of people and a superb ear', Wesley McNair here gives us his strongest and most moving volume to date, a major addition to what the Ruminator Review calls 'one of the most individual bodies of work by a poet of his generation'.

'McNair's poems are full of people with lives like his own, like ours, ordinary lives that are incredibly unique and complex' - Louis McKee, Library Journal.
