Description

"Winner of the Codhill Poetry Chapbook Award for 2008, Barry Sternlieb's Winter Crows recalls the directness of Asian master poets, its offerings as deft as calligraphic brushwork, as acoustically sound as birdsong, as defined as avian tracks through newly fallen snow, leading to the house of wisdom. "
