Poetry. Winner of the 2013 Burnside Review Book Prize. "In GOOD NIGHT BROTHER, the tension between saying and not-saying is palpable, intense, and deeply moving; similarly, the gestures of innocent ease and alert vigilance are unnervingly close. Kimberly Burwick deftly inhabits divided realms—the lushness of the giving, natural world and the violence of the human-made one, and as every poet of witness must, she accepts the weighty task of naming exactly what she sees before her. In these spare and yet richly sensuous poems, every human experience touched is indeed 'blessed with utterance.'"—Lia Purpura
