Poet Adam Day: Left-Handed Wolf

Event Image: 

About the book:

Adam Day's Left-Handed Wolf offers short lyrical meditations and narratives that wrestle with contemporary issues of the environment, spirituality, and the social. These compact, imagistic poems welcome space and silence as a way of addressing both the commonality and complexity of people and experience. Day's poems--influenced by meditation practice, as well as by classical Japanese and Chinese verse--are serious and bawdy, reverential and impertinent, accessible and eclectic, yet unified in their tone, atmosphere, and sensibility.
