Fall of Frost
A NovelBook - 2008
Told in short chapters, each of which presents an emblematic incident with intensity and immediacy, this novel deftly weaves together the earlier parts of the poet Robert Frost's life with his final year. In 1962, at age eighty-eight, and under the looming threat of the Cuban Missile Crisis, he made a visit to Russia and met with Khrushchev in a quixotic attempt to save the world from nuclear war.
