The Prettiest Star

2018 INDIES Book of the Year Finalist

"Breathtaking" - Kirkus Reviews


The Prettiest Star is a sequence of lyrical poems that tell the story of love, loss and longing.  By turns humorous and heartrending, abstract and intimate, these passionate poems are a pleasure to read for their songlike language as well as for their astonishing imagery.  In his second book of poetry, Darlington juxtaposes emotional heft with a gorgeous simplicity.  Propulsive, musical, fresh and profound.
