Tess Gallagher, Willingly (Graywolf Press, 1984)

There is likely a good deal to say about Willingly, one of the books Tess Gallagher wrote principally about her husband Raymond Carver, but to be honest, I can't think of any of it. All I can remember about the work in this book is that I liked it a great deal. ****
Especially liked the poems that Gallagher writes about the relationships between fathers and children and that explore issues of class and identity
