Book Description:
Distinguished poet Donald Hall reflects on the meaning of work, solitude, and love

'The best new book I have read this year, of extraordinary nobility and wisdom. It will remain with me always.'
Louis Begley, The New York Times

'A sustained meditation on work as the key to personal happiness. . . . Life Work reads most of all like a first person psychological novel with a poet named Donald Hall as its protagonist. . . . Hall's particular talents ultimately are for the memoir, a genre in which he has few living equals. In his hands the memoir is only partially an autobiographical genre. He pours both his
full critical intelligence and poetic sensibility into the form.'
Dana Gioia, Los Angeles Times

'Hall . . . here offers a meditative look at his life as a writer in a spare and beautifully crafted memoir. Devoted to his art, Hall can barely wait for the sun to rise each morning so that he can begin the task of shaping words.'
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

'I am delighted and moved by Donald Hall's Life Work, his autobiographical tribute to sheer work as distinguished from labor as the most satisfying and ennobling of activities, whether one is writing, canning vegetables or playing a dung fork on a New Hampshire farm.'
Paul Fussell, The Boston Globe

Donald Hall is the author of numerous prizewinning volumes of poetry, including The One Day, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, essays, children's books, and criticism. His new collection of short stories, The Willow Temple, will be published by Houghton Mifflin this spring.
