Overview

The life of Robert Frost, brilliantly re-imagined by the author of the acclaimed I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company

Called “a spellbinding prose stylist”(Los Angeles Times), Brian Hall drew extraordinary praise for his novel I Should Be Extremely Happy in Your Company, in which he captured the personal lives of Lewis and Clark. Now he turns his talents to Robert Frost, arguably America’s most famous poet. Through the revelatory voice of fiction, Hall gives us an artist toughened by tragedy, whose intimacy with death gave life to his poetry-for him, the preeminent symbol of man’s form-giving power. This is the exquisitely rendered portrait of one man’s rages, guilt, generosity, and defiant persistence-as much a fictional masterwork as it is a meditation on greatness.

Praise

“Flawless, intensively moving, and supremely intelligent . . . A novel as wily, elusive, and deceptively plain as the life it so deftly evokes.”
-The Boston Globe

“A savory pleasure to read . . . A powerful and convincing portrait of the poet.”
-The Washington Post
