Follow the Wolf Moon
by S. Donovan Mullaney
The poems in this captivating debut collection are a series of meditations on universal themes of spiritual longing, family, love, and loss. With lyrical understatement and often self-deprecating humor, the author pierces the shadow of the human heart, retrieving unexpected—yet everyday—insights.
The collection revolves around moon imagery and seasonal cycles. Starting with the shifting brilliance of autumn, the poems then move the reader through the darkness and longing of winter, the excitement and awakening of spring, finally to the ripeness of summer.
A captivating debut collection of poetry from New England author, S. Donovan Mullaney.
What Others Say:
"A writer with a gift for language and the way a poem moves... even a sense of humor and a political conscience. From the wonderful, sexy Don't Stop Your Hand Moving to the strange and haunting Temple of Set. Pythagoras has a surprising subject beautifully observed; Chocolate for Vicky and THE BOY is a small tour de force. Delicious!"— Lloyd Schwartz
Author of Cairo Traffic and Goodnight, Gracie;
Winner 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.
