This collection includes over 60 poems written over the last 35 years. Roughly half of the collection has appeared in print in poetry journals and other publications, and that work is presented together now for the first time with new writing.
“At Sunset, Facing East is an absorbing journey through one man’s life—its humor, its wonder, its despair and its dreams. Turning the pages, you feel the light coming and going, the sudden appearance of shadows, the darkness making quiet entrance.
This is a poet who believes that life itself is the great poem one is writing, and the book dazzles with its rigorous and passionate contemplation of what it means to be alive.”
—Kendra Kopelke, Poet, Editor of Passager and author of Eager Street and Hopper’s Women
