Description

Less of Her is informed by a knowledge of irredeemable loss. While its poems record diminishment and imminent disappearances, they strike notes of survival and triumph, mining despair and longing for "small winnings." In this collection of female voices, grief and the sadnesses of desire are catalysts, but love consoles, redeems, "make[s] everything sing." These humane and ageless poems demand our attention.
