Book Description

"Like the Mozart of his imagination, Donald Platt finds the notes that love one another and (like his Mozart), puts them together...He has a delicate ear, Platt, and a generous mind that lets the world come in. His range is connected to this generosity, as it is connected to his unrelenting memory and his intense pity and his unforgetting eye. He is a fine poet."
