“This compelling collection of epistolary exchanges invites us into a relationship two poets have formed as one is slowly dying of cancer. So begins a conversation that becomes necessary to both. With Neruda as a guide they gather in the emptiness around them with the open living hands of friendship and poetry.”
—Dorianne Laux, Pulizer Prize Nominee and author of Only As the Day is Long

“In this brief epistolary collection, poets Paola Bruni and Jory Post confront mortality. Whether through humor, deep reflection, shared grief, or the sometimes-uneasy bond of those who contemplate our finitude, these poets offer a bold fiat that fully embraces both the blessing and the curse of inhabiting a human body.”
—Frank Paino, author of Obscura

"Poets Paola Bruni and Jory Post created a book both rapturous and melancholy, a monument to the creative urge, to poetry, and to the music of two voices singing in harmony. Their poems speak with great affection and candor, and carry the reader along on their intimate, revealing journey."
—Gary Young, author of No Other Life
