Interesting fictionalized take on Poe's hard-scrabble life, and his (probable) illicit romance with a fellow poet. I especially enjoyed the author's folding in actual poems, and the timing of their publication, into the plot of the story. Interesting factoid from the afterword: Poe earned ~$600 from his writing in his entire lifetime. If a new manuscript were to surface today, it would be worth millions...
