Linda Pastan has continued to share this sense of revelation ever more broadly and deeply, from book to book, with her readers—for, as May Sarton has said, “It is above all her integrity that has made Linda Pastan such a rewarding poet.”

This remarkable new collection of poems is a sure affirmation of the fact that, as one critic has written, Linda Pastan “has quietly become one of our leading poets.” Another critic noted, of her first volume, that she “in large measure fulfilled Emerson’s dream—the revelation of ‘the miraculous in the common.’”
