0 Reviews

A selection of insightful and poignant poems, this collection reminisces with poise and candor about the author’s life in Wellington, Catholic upbringing, derelict acquaintances, the challenges of giving up drinking, and more. Aptly named after the phone number of his grandparents, which came to mind out of nowhere after many years, the poems reflect upon the lingering memories and dubious truths of a personal memoir—yet with the verbal skill and emotional precision that only poetry can offer.
