Nocturnal Tonglen is a stirring first book of poetry by Derek Hanebury, dealing with the disappearance of a young woman, his sister-in-law, Carolyn Pruyser. Angry at times, but also elegiac, the poetry confronts the darkness of suffering and, like the Buddhist practice of tonglen, exhales the white light of love and compassion.
