The Language of Grief
by Alex Gallo-Brown
The poems in "The Language of Grief" chronicle the sudden loss of the poet's father to illness and subsequent effect that loss had on his family, community, and psyche. The book's lyrical, often darkly humorous poems show the ways that grief can shatter us--and the ways we put ourselves back together.
