This debut collection of poetry begins with the excitement of childhood and progresses through a life well lived. Overall, rather melancholy, the poems individually evoke emotion in the reader. However, I would highly recommend reading the poems in the order presented as they build on each other resulting in a memoir-type feeling once the book is complete. Many of the images continue to resonate long after the book is read. I'm looking forward to the next book by this author.
I received this book as part of Goodreads First Reads program but that has not impacted my review.
