This book is a compelling collection of poems penned by the late Robert Crosson. Spanning the period 1982-1998, they demonstrate vividly Crosson’s search “to find a language to think in, a language passionately concerned with things, very specific things,” as Paul Vangelisti writes in the Afterword to this volume.

Robert Crosson was born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, in 1929. He moved to California in 1944 and eventually settled in Los Angeles, where he spent most of his life working as a carpenter, house painter and professional actor. The author of four volumes of poetry, Crosson died in 2001.
