A great book of poems. The first poems are from family stories that it's obvious have become part of de Vries own story, the burden of family history some of us carry with us through life. In this case, de Vries family burden has given rise to some beautiful poems. I also liked the later poems which are based on the poet's own experiences as an activist and a seeker after justice.
