As the wind howls around his camping caravan on a remote Welsh farm, poet David Whyte sits at a table, trying – and failing – to write. He's worried he has lost his gift. He's worried he never had a gift at all. But just outside, invisible and unexpected, is someone who offers him help – and friendship – at the exact moment he needs it. Their lifelong friendship takes root here, in the magical, windswept landscape of Wales, where place-names are poetry, where memories live long in the rolling hills.
David Whyte is a poet and author. He has written 10 volumes of poetry and four books of prose, including the bestselling The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. His newest book is River Flow: New & Selected Poems.
