A man disappears. The woman who loves him is left scarred and haunted. In her fiercely original debut, Rebecca Lindenberg tells the story—in verse—of her passionate relationship with Craig Arnold, a much-respected poet who disappeared in 2009 while hiking on a volcano in Japan. Lindenberg’s billowing, ‘I-contain-multitudes’ style lays bare the poet’s sadnesses, joys, and longings in poems that are lyric and narrative, at once plainspoken and musically elaborate.
