Book Details

Rolly Kent returns to poetry with a book that explores the mysteries and comforts of the known and unknown. Phone Ringing in a Dark House is filled with the mystery of loss, love, and the restorative powers of memory and language. In these forty-eight poems, the product of an intense return to poetry after a twenty-year absence, Rolly Kent writes about ordinary moments when the known and unknown overlap. These poems are, as one of the stars in the night sky says early in the book, a response to our wish not only to live but to “live again.”
