Review quote

With artful precision, Merle Nudelman reveals the ordinary and extraordinary moments of a child's life in a language that is both fresh and profound. What results is a poetic that transforms not only how we observe and experience those most dear to us but the concept of life and death itself. At the core, Nudelman's fourth collection of poetry is celebratory - a poetry of revival that can only come after great loss and great joy, a revival that sustains like the image of her deceased son, Michael, who now is the sturdy "oak" that "shade[s" those who are left behind. - Laura Lush
