Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Thanks so much to Story South and reviewer Sean Delgado for this thoughtful review of Dear Almost. Delgado calls Dear Almost "a book-length poem that is clear, yet nuanced and subtle in its use of imagery and implied metaphor, compassionate and graceful in its grief, and marvelous in its myriad of arrangements and structures." You can read the full review here.
Marianne Boruch’s poems delve into the quirks and oddities of our daily lives. They show us the mind in motion as the poet explores, and revels in the experience of exploration as much as what it might reveal. We caught up at the end of a busy semester (or maybe it was the start of a new one) to talk about how poems happen, how books come together, and the quiet rituals of her begging bowl and hospital rounds over at the Ploughshares blog.
