Pulitzer Prize winner Galway Kinnell's first new collection of poetry in more than a decade, with a bound-in CD of poems read by the author

Here is the eleventh book of poems by Galway Kinnell, whom the New York Times has called one of the true master poets of his generation. In this striking and various collection, he gives us poems of intermingling with the natural world, love poems and evocations of sexuality, poems about his father, his children, poet friends, poet heroes, and mythic figures. Included also is When the Towers Fell, his stunning requiem for those who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The book's title derives from Walt Whitman's Last Invocation : Strong is your hold O mortal flesh, / Strong is your hold O love.
