Additional Praise:

“These beautiful, literate poems explore how we must relate to one another in order to survive. they examine the relationship of suffering and redemption; they propose the importance of imagination; and they say that continuing to care for one another in a dangerous world where grief and joy collide is indeed a risk, but it may be only answer”
Money Review

“In these elegant and searing poems, Theodore Deppe gives voice to the full complexity of human character, creating a world that is charged and expansive. With cinematic vividness and stunning eloquence, these poems examine the tensions between hope and despair, responsibility and mystery—as if a sacred universe we were in danger of losing had been stayed at the moment of vanishing. The dramatic monologues are a triumph of the imagination.”
