Poetry. California Interest. Women's Studies. Winner of the 2014 Frost Place Chapbook Competition. In THE GREENHOUSE, Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet details the dual desires of new motherhood—the struggle to make peace with both connection and separation, with being a self irrevocably tied to another self. In lines both fluid and broken, delicate and irreverent, these lyrics recount with boundless love the difficulty of finding oneself again as a parent, and the elemental joy of being transformed by the very life that tethers you.
