Mark Doty's prose has been hailed as tempered and tough, sorrowing and serene (The New York Times Book Review) and achingly beautiful (The Boston Globe). In Still Life with Oysters and Lemon he offers a stunning exploration of our attachment to ordinary things-how we invest objects with human store, and why.
