The Last Uncle


Linda Pastan (Author)


"Autumnal and subdued...movingly chronicles loss, fear, the passing of time."—Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World

In The Last Uncle, Linda Pastan writes, "If death is everywhere we look, / at least let's marry it to beauty." The poems in this new collection deal with loss and the difficult transition between generations, but they are also about love and landscape and the many pleasures of the imagination.
