"In a series of linked poems, a gay son at his father's deathbed ("no accident/it's me, Dad, your mortal enemy and friend ...") uncovers his family's past and his own passage from childhood to raising a son. Cool and alert, the poems stretch across roadways from Illinois to California and from the 1840s to the present, navigating the silences and reticent disclosures of generations of boys and men."--BOOK JACKET. bnatoc
