's review

really liked it

Naomi Nye can do no wrong, and this moving tribute to her father (and the dead) is no exception. Some of the poems even use titles provided from her father's notebooks--and are spoken in her father's voice. The bond between daughter and father is strong, loving, and--at times--exasperating, but it's the love that most shines through. As always, the poems intermix the personal and the political with the wisdom Nye seems to write so readily in lines like "There's a way not to be broken / that takes brokenness to find it."
