Largely written following a near-fatal medical emergency, this stirring collection of poetry offers the story of a young man whose gratitude at being alive is undercut by his own confusion and ambivalence. Brandishing a newly acute sense of mortality, the author emerges as a stroller of the Atlantic, stalked by terrifying sea legends, death-steeped domesticity, and the extinct Newfoundland wolf. Understated, sinister, and unsettling, this series of poems is an unforgettable offering from a budding master of the craft.
