By Charles Fishman

Publisher's Note:
Country of Memory is a memoir in poetry that uncovers the confusing, mysterious, and often dangerous paths we travel to make sense of our lives. The poems center on family, friendship, nature, and foreign lands, on love and loss of love, and reveal how we somehow manage to grow up and survive. Charles Fishman's fifth booklength collection shines a clear light on the gate of memory, which we must open to understand who we are.
