Nobody’s perfect, but some of us—mostly men—are blinded by our hubris and baser urges. Judgment is impeded. Mistakes are made. The stories in this collection, many of them set outside the U.S., explore some of the consequences of these common failings.
In this, her fourth collection, celebrated poet Megan Merchant plumbs the contemporary American social consciousness as she explores the ageless themes of love and loss. Using the landscape of the changing seasons as her canvas, she sketches the abstract shape of marriage, motherhood, and grief. Merchant invokes the vivid decay of autumn, drawing a fierce parallel to the slow loss of her dying mother. These sparse, powerful, and distinctly wrought poems recognize that too often the most painfully palpable moments of our lives are the ones we lack the language to illuminate.
