“In My Bedside Radio, song lyrics lead Anthony Cappo back through his early years in a sequence of taut, associative poems rich with details both personal and historical. Within range of this poet’s thoughtful listening, no one is ever “just singing // a song.” Colored at times by longing and nostalgia, at others by wistfulness or regret, these moving poems show how the soundtracks of our lives enable us to stay connected to our early experiences and emotions, reminding us who we were—and ultimately who we are.”
—Matthew Thorburn, author of This Time Tomorrow and Green River in Spring
