This was a beautiful collection of art and poetry. While I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone, I think people familiar with the genre will love this book.
This was an amazing collection of poetry! While there was a poem or two that kind of threw me off, it’s no surprise that Giannelli’s collection won the Iowa Poetry Prize.
The short version: If you only read one book of poetry this year, let it be this one. As someone who loves poetry, I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was beautifully written, and provides incredible insight to those who feel most forgotten in the course of humanity.
