Poetry. "Rendered with acute beauty, tenderness and measured dignity of expression, Amanda Auchter's debut collection breathes life into her speakers and themes: a woman in a coma, biblical figures, the divine and the earthly, an unborn child, being and nothingness, a daughter given up for adoption, the body and the soul, a hungover unwed mother. These poems radiate insistent light, pure lyric courage and unflagging compassion"—Amy Gerstler.
