In HOW LIGHT LEAVES, James Crews gives readers what John Updike once famously called "the human news." He writes with raw honesty about the loss of his father and an ever-changing, yet consciously alive, natural world that promises relief from even the worst of our grief. These poems delve deeply and wholeheartedly into each moment, with scenes made transcendent by Crews' close observation of a world always accessible to us, which he reminds us "we can trace with our naked eyes.
