Poetry. Fiction. Culled from writings of an intense period of grief upon grief upon grief, STEEP IN THE BOIL is a deeply felt prose poetry memoir that rarely names its subject, which "hulks there, unwritten." Its tonal, sometimes fragmented, sometimes narrative texts are more the exhaust of its author enduring, fortified by the mysterious consolations of language.
