Still Life in Milford


Thomas Lynch (Author)


A collection of poems by the highly acclaimed author of The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade, a National Book Award finalist.

In Still Life in Milford Thomas Lynch tenders poems on life and death, history and memory, the local and the larger geographies. "[Thomas Lynch's] poems . . . are as stark and graceful as geese lifting off backwater. The poems trace from the rural midwest to London and County Clare, a quiet elegy of loss and testament. But then Lynch is by trade a mortician, and by craft a bard."— "[Lynch] evinces a steady wisdom drawn from years of passionate attention to daily experience."—Seattle Weekly
