The long-awaited and resplendent new poetry collection by Tess Gallagher, whose poems "are a gift of a poet's heart and soul to her readers" (Robert Coles) "" "Don' t sharpen them. Expectation, more dangerous than any blade. - " Knives in the Borrowed House" " Fourteen years after "Moon Crossing Bridge"- Tess Gallagher' s powerful elegies for her husband, Raymond Carver- "Dear Ghosts," is the return of Gallagher' s unequivocal voice. In these new poems, the ghosts of the past are conjured as part of the present day: the deceased beloved, the father long dead, the ailing mother, the victims of holocaust and war.
