Winner of the 2001 Kathryn A. Morton Prize in Poetry.

Barot's mature linguistic skills really come down to a metaphorical and musical intelligence that refuses to value one element over another, that will not let the language or the longing take over.--From the Foreword by Stanley Plumly

This is a book of lyric wonders: wit that turns dark, darkness that blazes up again in music and story.--Eavan Boland Rick Barot is currently Jones Lecturer in Poetry at Stanford University. He was born in the Philippines and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He attended Wesleyan University, the Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa, and Stanford, where he was a Wallace E. Stegner Fellow in Poetry.
