"This new book by award-winning author Amy Newman explores as its formal structure the 72 definitions for the word "fall." These poems span a narrative drama - from the creation of the world and the subsequent exile of its first inhabitants, through the downward movement of the human body in its surrender to illness and the world's gravitational pull, to the beauty in the descent of spent foliage in autumn."--Jacket.
