Late in a Slow Time is an intricate book that deftly marks the 'little monumental changes' that make up our daily lives. In poems about the contradictory nature of wonder, suffering, and acceptance, Carole Glasser Langille shows us 'how fine-tuned this unanswered world is.' In her search for breadth within the limitations of fate, we are privy to a big-hearted poet whose sentiments have been tested and shaped by experience, who acknowledges the good around and ahead of us. This is a wise book.
