Description

“Sure to be a classic, and the beginning of a long and glorious career.”—Sherman Alexie

Increasingly, Todd Boss has been attracting attention, with poems in the Paris Review and The New Yorker and a series in Poetry. His first collection, set in the Midwest, alternately features a childhood Wisconsin farm, the record-breaking storm that destroyed it, and the turbulent marriage that recalls it. Love and wonder mingle in these lines.

“Like Frost, Todd Boss uses the hardships and beauty of farm life to examine the rough fabric of human connection.” — Dorianne Laux. author of Facts About the Moon
