In Marc Harshman’s prize-winning collection, actual war, age, and disaster mingle with dream and hallucinatory sadness to produce an edgy sweetness few American poets have managed to give us. The voices of the lost, and found, are strangely like our own, and the stories they tell, or imply, are familiar without ever seeming the least bit stale or contrived. For all the sadness in their subject matter, the poems are deeply humane, affectionate, restorative, and brilliantly told. The work is a unique treasure.
