POETRY



M. F. McAuliffe (The Crucifixes and Other Friday Poems, I'm Afraid of Americans) was shocked and saddened by the death of Ursula K. Le Guin. Written over the succeeding twelve months, these poems describe an accumulating, multi-layered experience of personal and communal loss.




"The poems are heart-rending and at the same time full of love."

Luisa Valenzuela, Winner, Carlos Fuentes Prize 2019; author, DeathCats, The Lizard's Tail, Bedside Manners, Black Novel With Argentines, The Censors: A Bilingual Selection of Stories, and God's Joke


"Each day the world got a day's worth of worse, and went on," McAuliffe writes. And this sensibility of endurance, of "climbing chalk cliffs by front teeth alone" gives us this — a particular grief, a critique and context, a poetic something-more, on the death of Ursula K. Le Guin. A monumental monument, a sending forth of some Great Ship, a pain-spattered sunset, a howling — and more."

Jenny Forrester, author, Narrow River, Wide Sky, and A Memoir and Soft Hearted Stories: Seeking Saviors, Cowboy Stylists, and Other Fallacies of Authoritarianism
