Poetry. Nonfiction. Allison Cobb wanders Brooklyn's famous nineteenth-century Green-Wood Cemetery and discovers that its 500 acres—hills and ponds, trees and graves—mirror the American landscape: a place marked by greed, war, and death, but still pulsing with life. The book is a testament to what survives and an elegy for what is lost, the long dead, the landscape itself, but especially those who died in the Twin Towers and in the United States's ongoing wars.


Allison Cobb is the author of BORN TWO (Chax Press, 2004) and GREEN-WOOD (Factory School, 2010), which chronicles her experiences in Brooklyn, New York's famous nineteenth-century Green-Wood Cemetery. She was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico, as were the first atomic bombs, and she now lives in Portland, Oregon.
