What Saves Us

Bruce Weigl
Winner of the 2006 Lannan Foundation Award for Poetry

In these wrenching, elegant poems, Bruce Weigl writes out of uncompromising memory and vision. His subject is both the transport and anguish of being open to the lived and living moment. From bars and bedrooms, in Ohio and Nicaragua and Vietnam, his voice rises through the noise of history and habit to reach us with impeccable grace and remarkable invention.
