For a Limited Time Only by Ronald Wallace


David St. John also recommends
For a Limited Time Only, by Ronald Wallace: "With his signature humor and elegant wit, Ron Wallace makes clear that the 'limited time' of the title is our own mortal passage. This is a death-inflected collection, filled with meditations upon illness that refuse to buckle in the face of the unspeakable. His wrenching elegies and playful celebrations of the self are always bouyed by his understanding of the richness of experience. Ronald Wallace's touch is remarkably light even when his heart is heavy." (Pittsburgh)
