I Wish My Father by Lesléa New­man

Lesléa Newman’s I Wish My Father is comprised of narrative poems about her father in the last years of his life, and retrospectively, throughout his ninety-plus years. With precision, compression, and a graceful style earned through a lifetime of writing, paired with Newman’s tender and compassionate gaze, we are given the true good, the enduring image of the person kept beyond time, love’s greatest blessing. Who could ask more of a work of art?
—Gray Jacobik, author of Eleanor and The Banquet: New and Selected Poems
