Never Summer

Poems from Thin Air

Winner of the Colorado Book Award for Poetry

Never Summer speaks tenderly . . . layered so the perception of reality becomes almost super-real. This book is an everyday world where tragedy and bad news occasionally intrude. So does an ironic humor. Through all the ups and downs, there is a thread of confidence in the future, the belief that “we will build a lasting home.”
