This first collection of poems by Pittsburgh poet Richard Schnap paints a portrait of the modern world through insightful observations of people, places, and events told in ways grounded in everyday realities that evoke dreamlike vistas, surreal panoramas, and the heartfelt passage through a life frequently marked by longing and loss. A desolate landscape emerges that blends with soulful studies of characters that pass through it in a time of trials and tribulations that has no easy resolution but still is rich in sudden beauty and signs of wonder and magic.
