From the Publisher: White Apples and the Taste of Stone is the definitive lifetime work of an American master-with a bound-in audio CD of selections read by the author. One of the most significant poets of his generation, Donald Hall has garnered numerous accolades and honors, including the Frost Medal from the Poetry Society of America, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. White Apples and the Taste of Stone collects more than two hundred poems from across sixty years of Hall's celebrated career, with new poems recently published in The New Yorker, the American Poetry Review, and the New York Times. Greatly anticipated, this is Hall's first selected volume in fifteen years, and also the first to include poems from his seminal bestseller, Without. The bound-in audio CD was specially recorded by Hall for this publication-more than an hour of favorite poems from throughout the book. Hall's distinctive, sonorous voice and inimitable humor provide a perfect companion for fans of his work and for classroom use.… (more)

W/ CD but the author's voice is boring.  I selected about a dozen poems, based on titles, to read from this to decide if I wanted to sit down with it, and decided not to.  I appreciate poetry in chap-book size doses better... sorry.

Even a Baseball Fan Will: Even a baseball fan , such as myself will love this collection of Poems. I knew Donald Hall from his baseball writings and love of the game. Now as U.S. poet laureate, I had to see more of hime as evidenced by this book. Not a one night read, but a pleasure to pick up and dwell on and savor slowly.
