Frannie Lindsay

Product Detail:

This is Frannie Lindsay's book of praise,  but the praise we find here is no simple matter.  Some poems bring us moments of startlingly pure tenderness and communion between sisters, one of whom is dying of cancer. Others bring moments that feel as if the poet is taking a long,  deep, and utterly free breath, knowing that her incestuous father has passed, and that she at last is "a daughter no longer". Lindsay's poems whisper to us of the finite and the mortal, and teach us in startling image after image of the ordinary but transient wonders in our days.
 -Fred Machant
