Poetry. Women's Studies. "THE SECOND LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR offers us a poetic landscape that is easily entered but not lightly forgotten. Jean Prokott's writing is agile. It moves gracefully from a stark wittiness and conversational observations to unforgettable imagery evoking the true palpability of grief. You'll find yourself pausing between pages to reflect and revel; to mourn or query; to grow and keep going."—Sierra DeMulder
