Each poem in Lessons of the Dead starts with that premise, and the results are funny, imaginative, and often strange: The road back to life is long, winding and lined with truck stops and waiting rooms, but it is also chockfull of hope and humor and beauty. Part memento mori and part a total embrace of life itself, Lessons of the Dead is likely different from any poetry book you’ve ever read.
