I Never Dared Hope for You: Lyric Essays

I Never Dared Hope for You: Lyric Essays

by Christian Bobin, Alison Anderson




Containing 11 short, contemplative sketches—rarely more than 10 pages long—this collection reflects upon time, paying attention, solitude, companionship, and grace. In an era of increasingly cynical, mediatized or sensationalistic literature, the voice is a quiet plea for sanity, simplicity, and a return to the source.
