“With the luminous precision of music, Bruce Bond has crafted, in Cinder, a generous and urgent collection of poems, a work that celebrates the human condition and terrifies us with it in equal measure. The result is a book of poems weighted with dark vision, set loose. Bruce Bond is one of our generation’s best poets, and this is his best book.”—Laura Kasischke

About the Author

In Peal, we find a sustained exploration of mortality and its embodiment in the consolations of beauty, most notably in music, its often wordless language for the powers of renewal, faith, and the imagination.
