The new poems "traces the immutable shifting of seasons, the relentless rhythms of a great world that both 'gifts and harms'," according to publishers.

"Luminous, resonant and profound, these poems trace the dying days of summer, 'the hour of rust' when memory is haunted by loss and decay."

The 63-year-old author is currently working on a sequel to his epic novel, A Suitable Boy, scheduled to hit the market in 2017 according to publishers.
