Baker & Taylor A collection of poems about childhood that allude to a girlhood colored by abuse and a brother's death.
This confident, intense debut speaks of ruined childhoods with both terror and tenderness.
Reader, take heed: These are no ordinary poems about childhood. In a series of secular prayers, Cynthia Cruz alludes to a girlhood colored by abuse and a brother’s death. A beautifully understated sense of menace and damage pervades this vivid, nonlinear tale.
