“A virtuosic treatment of a virtuoso's life . . . stuffed with historical and musical arcana.”
“Dove's richly imagined book has the sweep and vivid characters of a novel, but it's written with a poet's economy, an eye for the exact detail.”
Rita Dove is a former U.S. Poet Laureate, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Heinz Award, and a musician. She lives in Charlottesville, where she is Commonwealth Professor of English at the University of Virginia.
