Publisher Description:
"Len Roberts is a poet of unwavering truthfulness and unwavering
mercy," commented Sharon Olds about Black Wings, a 1988 National
Poetry Series selection. Counting the Black Angels, Roberts's eighth
book of poetry, is a piercingly painful and redemptive work in which he
probes memories of a violent family history and his covenants with God
and the "Black Angels."
"Roberts's new work is among the most intelligent, moving, and expressive
poetry now being written."
-- Hayden Carruth
