Book of My Nights by lyric poet Li-Young Lee. He wrote the entire book during a stretch of several nights -- so trite as it sounds, the title refers to the writer's process as well as the book's content (and/or the author's/reader's malcontent, it seems). I've always been intrigued by the hardiness of materials that are crafted at night -- in the wee, dark hours when everything else is shifting and impermanent -- and thought this collection is a "sweet" one, it has a lot of the flesh and blood of the heart.
