*Moon in a Mason Jar* and *What My Father Believed*

Poems

Two of Wrigley's finest collections of poems are now together in one volume.


"One of the finest new poets to come along in years: strong, imaginative, and resolute."
-- James Dickey

"An acute eye for authentic detail and a subtle ear for the rhythms and cadences of real speech, and what he has to say is worth hearing."
-- Booklist

"Robert Wrigley's poems of testimony and memory cast a fierce, clarifying, and ultimately healing light into the dark reaches of the American psyche."
-- Edward Hirsch

"Invigorating narratives . . . [an] abundance of intellectual and aesthetic rewards." -- Prairie Schooner

"Against the inchoate and mortal powers, Wrigley's poems are whole."
-- Stanley Plumley
