it was amazing
Recommended for: those who love words
Read in November, 2006

Lee's lyrical and quiet voice speaks volumes in his work, and Book of My Nights is no exception. His choice of words continues to be unparalleled, his voice thoughtful and precise without being clinical. Book of My Nights discusses the relationships between father, mother, and child as well as the themes of death and loss, using beautiful and poignant imagery and simple language.

In 2002, this book won the William Carlos Williams Award.
