With Only Which She Could Carry: a poetry collection

My new book is now on sale!

Please consider asking a book shop in your area to order the book for you; by ordering through a brick and mortar, you help keep them in business and bookstores in our communities. Also, when you shop at an independently-owned business, your entire community benefits: Spend $100 local and $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.

Use IndieBound to locate an independent bookstore near you. Or, you can order through them to ship right to your house.

If you must though, it can be purchased from Bezos or B&N. And I’ll only guilt trip you a little bit, and make it slightly less convenient by not linking to it in this post.

“Grand prize winner of the 2019 UWA book contest, With Only Which She Could Carry is a collection of poems chronicling transient characters trying to establish lives in multiple spaces at the same time, existing everywhere and nowhere at once. The author invites you to read, consider, and imagine a life lived out of terminals, stations, and the ether. Consider the motions of a life pressed through these turnstiles and what shapes might be formed of you from it. Consider what you might take and leave behind.”

Whether it’s how the higher education system has left the entertainer disillusioned on the path to self discovery, or the way wonders of the unknown ripple through the wayfarer in solitude, the stories woven between these poems share a heart. A nuanced look at life in limbo.
