Something Bright, Then Holes (eBook)
Sobre o livro
These days / the world seems to split up / into those who need to dredge / and those who shrug their shoulders / and say, Its just something / that happened. While Maggie Nelson refers here to a polluted urban waterway, the Gowanus Canal, these words could just as easily describe Nelsons incisive approach to desire, heartbreak, and emotional excavation inSomething Bright, Then Holes. Whether writing from the debris-strewn shores of a contaminated canal or from the hospital room of a friend, Nelson charts each emotional landscape she encounters with unparalleled precision and empathy. Since its publication in 2007, the collection has proven itself to be both a record of a singular vision in the making as well as a timeless meditation on love, loss, andperhaps most frightening of allfreedom.
