In dedicating this volume of poetry to his father, who was a championship runner in his time, Goldensohn compares the lyric poem to the hundred yard dash. Fans of Goldensohn’s work will find poems chosen from previous published works, including St. Venus Eve, Uncarving the Block, The Marrano, Dance Music and East Long Pond, as well as a generous portion of new work.
