The Way Summer Ends, Thomas Mitchell's new full-length book of poems, takes us to places imagined and unimagined, on a quiet, powerful journey characterized by the poet's deftness of craft, strong imagery, and lyricism.
These poems examine everyday people, places, and situations, where the reader discovers their uniqueness in "the dark moon shimmering in an empty whiskey glass," "an empty chair, a dismantled clock, it's wheels and teeth forever disconnected," or a soldier "listening to the song of an automatic, the staccato of a submachine gun." The author's unwavering voice-confident, generous, and authentic-guides us every step of the way, and we understand this experience will endure with us.
