Summary

Even if you don't enjoy reading poetry, you'll love this book. It's a delightful scrutiny of a man's youthful years that will touch your heart, stir your soul and give you food for thought.
This collection of poems covers a wide range of subjects from youth, friendship, romance, the people that shape your life, to the beauty of nature, its mystery and sometimes when it is "red in tooth and claw".
One of the most powerful poems deals with the poet's adolescent encounter with the Holocaust and its hellish images that stains his being deeply and sets him off into an obsessive cosmological quest for meaning and illumination, and he finally finds redemptive grace.
So the poems are sometimes autobiographical and at times, philosophical, but always lyrical, always profound but always accessible.
