In Water under Water, Charles Ades Fishman illuminates the web of relationships that exist between individual lives and the emotional and physical environments that shape them. In this collection of more than 60 poems, the poet takes us beneath the surfaces of things to deeper layers where memory's roots and tendrils haunt us but where change is not only possible but necessary. In one achingly beautiful poem after another, Fishman writes as son, father, guardian, husband, friend, lover . . . and as a deeply invested explorer and observer of the natural world that embraces, amazes, overwhelms, and nurtures us. Water under Water will pull you under and will release you, uplifted and renewed.
