Winner of the Isabella Gardner Award

In this Isabella Gardner Award-winning collection of poems, Bruce Weigl meditates on the ghosts and the grace one encounters in life's second act. A celebrated poet and veteran of the Vietnam War, Weigl offers a nuanced sense of aging as a departure and death as a returning home. With a sage's eye for mindfulness and a soldier's longing for the country where he served, Weigl's poems reveal the long scars left by Vietnam and the new possibilities one encounters in the wake of life-altering experiences.
