Richard Carr’s Ace is a gorgeously sad novel-in-verse. In a series of intimate 14-line poems, Carr follows the tragic love story of Ace and Carol, a love story born of junkyards. This poet carefully rescues and polishes discarded lives, gives voice and dignity to the disastrously troubled. Ace is emotionally complex, honest, and deftly crafted.
—DENISE DUHAMEL, author of  Mille et un sentiments

Ace offers us four vividly wrought characters bound together by the ineffable yet invincible ties of family. While all the lives here are “a blur of failure” in one sense or another, each is nonetheless haunted by “the fog and debris of lingering possibility”—possibility of love, of forgiveness, of redemption—even after death. In this beautifully rendered sequence, the gifted Richard Carr proves himself not only a superb poet but a fi rstclass storyteller, keeping us turning the pages with admiration and gratitude.
—CHRISTOPHER CONLON, author of Mary Falls: Requiem for Mrs. Surratt
