For twenty years, celebrated poet Micheal O’Siadhail’s beloved wife, Bríd, suffered from Parkinson’s disease. O’Siadhail’s verses explore the ordinary triumph of human fidelity and sound the depths of parting through a 150-sonnet sequence in which love faces wasting illness and the specter of death. There is tenderness, intensity, and gratitude—which will resonate with all who know both love and loss.

Micheal O’Siadhail is an internationally acclaimed poet whose Collected Poems, gathering together thirteen collections, was published in 2015. Married for forty-three years, he chronicles in One Crimson Thread the last two years of his wife’s life, her death, and his grief. He now lives and works in New York City.
