This is a collection in the "Peppercanister" series, unified by a sequence of poems that touches deeply on family circumstances, broadening into a historical and political insight into contemporary life through the eyes of Marcul Aurelius, into a broader setting of the human being with his sense of exile from meaning and meaningful living. This book is one of the most powerful of the series.
