Jay Parini

A reading by Jay Parini of thirty-three of his most celebrated poems. Jay Parini's readings are always an event, but too rare.

The audiobook follows the pattern of his popular readings, with the poet introducing each poem with context and comments, invariably revealing and often amusing. In these beautiful, haunting poems, Parini writes about the landscapes of mining country, of the railroads of Pennsylvania, of farm country, of worlds lost, families dispersed, faith tried and contested.
