About the Book

“Wright’s poems, with their grace and intelligence, not only stand as a rebuke to most of the glib work of his time, but remain among the finest examples of the midcentury American lyric.”—J.D. McClatchy, The New York Times Book Review

The fruits of the season, James Wright’s luminous prose captures eternal moments in his travels through Italy and France.

James Wright (1927–1980) won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1972. His many books include the recent Selected Poems and A Wild Perfection: The Selected Letters of James Wright.
