Milkweed Editions proudly announces the publication of
The Wish Book POEMS BY ALEX LEMON
"These poems know how to lift the lid and show us what we have and how briefly we have it. The great rhythmic vitality of his work is surpassed only by the pulse of Lemon's need to convey his love for the world and our place in it. To read this book is to meet a man who would climb the sky." —Bob Hicok
