Sometimes I never suffered

Shane McCrae, 1975-

Book - 2020

"In Sometimes I Never Suffered, his seventh collection of poems, Shane McCrae remains 'a shrewd composer of American stories' (Dan Chiasson, The New Yorker). Here, an angel, hastily thrown together by his fellow residents of Heaven, plummets to Earth in his first moments of consciousness. Jim Limber, the adopted mixed-race son of Jefferson Davis, wanders through the afterlife, reckoning with the nuances of America's racial history, as well as his own. Sometimes I Never Suffer...ed is a search for purpose and atonement, freedom and forgiveness, imagining eternity not as an escape from the past or present, but as a reverberating record and as the culmination of time's manifold potential to mend."--Publisher's description.
