Book Summary

"This eighteenth winner of the Walt McDonald First-Book-Prize in Poetry explores loss, grief, vigilance, and endurance. Three sections—Mortals, Lovers, and Mothers—focus on brutality, death, and other personal or public tragedies from which the single-mother persona would prefer to turn away, but instead turns toward and survives"—Provided by publisher.
