Patrick Lane is our most essential poet: tough, tender, fearless, and beautifully dangerous. For decades he has been our guide to darkness,
and our provider of unexpected flashes of brilliant, almost blinding light.
Now gathered together in one spot, the poetry of his life enhances
and energizes us, and takes us to places we would never go on our own.
Lane is a true Master.
