Matthew Console's first collection of poems directs its lens at larger subjects - love and loss, beauty and wonder, memory and desire - with a tender focus on the smallest details, the moments people tend to throw away or pass by without noticing. They are poems of a quiet wisdom, whose words are strung together with the breath and cadence of song. The Sea in the Heart of the Body is a book, a crushed fragrance, a softly-lit landscape that readers will return to again and again.
