Selected by Mark Doty for the 2019 Wheelbarrow Books Poetry Prize
In Not For Luck, Derek Sheffield ushers us into the beauty and grace that comes from giving attention to the interconnections that make up our lives. In particular, these poems explore a father’s relationship with his daughters, which is rooted in place and time.
