Piero Rivolta’s latest book of poems and prose reflections—One Life, Many Lives—looks to the past while offering keen observations and insight into our current state of affairs. Wistful musings, triggered by a visit to his childhood home in Italy, about watershed occurrences like September 11 and observations of his natural surroundings, alternate with lyric poems that celebrate love, art, music and other momentary pleasures.

A pensive sense of regret that time is slipping away pervades—people inevitably hurried along by historical events and the bustle of everyday life—but there is also a deep appreciation for what is best in humanity along with gentle reminders of the eternal truths that govern our earthly existence.
