Asunder

Asunder

Chosen for the National Poetry Series by Garrett Hongo, Susan Wood’s Asunder reveals a grown woman and fully mature poet facing grief and loss, longing and desire, and asking the questions with which we all must grapple: How does one go on living in the face of death and loss? What are the limits of knowledge in this world? To what extent can one ever know oneself and others? Wood has written an elegiac book full of ghosts, not only of old lovers, friends, and fellow poets, but of her own lost innocence.
