Bombshelter Press, 1987 36pp
A collection of 22 poems by Macdonald Carey, some previously published in The New York Quarterly.
These poems . . . reveal a gentle irony that hints at the pain and paradox of the real world. The poems all have an astonishing sanity and good nature to them, and perhaps this is because they are written by a man who has worked long and well in his chosen field, has suffered deeply in his own life, and as William Faulkner once called for in all men, has prevailed.
William Packard, New York Quarterly
