Winner of the 2021 Confederation Poets Prize * One of The Times' Best Poetry Books of 2022"...a trans-mystical work of love and change..."-Ali Blythe, author of HymnswitchThe mystics who coined the phrase 'the way of affirmation' understood the apocalyptic nature of the word yes, the way it can lead out of one life and into another. Moving among the languages of Christian conversion, Classical metamorphosis, seasonal transformation, and gender transition, Luke Hathaway tells the story of the love that rewired his being, asking each of us to experience the transfiguration that can follow upon saying yes-with all one's heart, with all one's soul, with all one's mind, with all one's strength ... and with all one's body, too.
