Following his near-death from an acute brain illness, Andrew Greig has come back with a vital, life-affirming book of poems. Into You celebrates the joy of living every moment, heightened by a visceral sense of transience and mortality. These short, clear, passionate poems speak of final things -- desire, loss, joy, death -- with a positive clarity uncommon in our times. Here is poetry refreshed by new wisdom, speaking directly to the reader. Increasingly celebrated as a novelist -- his latest is The Clouds Above (Simon and Schuster) -- Greig continues to write poems that touch the heart and cut to the quick.
