A Book of Friendship
Max Ritvo and Sarah Ruhl
Pre-order now for September 2018!

In 2012, Sarah Ruhl was a distinguished, two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist; Max Ritvo was an exuberant, opinionated, intensely curious and intensely gifted poet in remission from pediatric cancer.

Max Ritvo

A final collection fully inscribed with the daring of the author’s acrobatic mind and the force of his unrelenting spirit. These poems brush up against the pain, fear, and isolation that accompany a long illness, but with all the creative force of an artist in full command of his craft and the teeming affection of a human utterly in love with the world.

Vulnerable, tender, acute, these are serious poems, brave poems, exploring with honesty the ambiguous moment between the rapture of youth and the grace of acceptance. This collection shows us the persistence of hunger, love, and joy, the dizzying fullness of our too-short lives.
