Claudia Emerson, Late Wife Louisiana State University Press, I've had very little patience with review-writing for the past six weeks or so, and thus I let this review go unconscionably long I finished the book on April 30th and am writing this on June 10th.
Thus, I've forgotten most of the phrases I was turning over in my mind. I do know, however, they all involved heaping a great deal of praise on Late Wife, Claudia Emerson's most recent book and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. I often find myself wondering what the judges were thinking giving the prize to book X instead of book Y; not in this case. The details may be a little fuzzy in my head this far after the fact, but the book itself is pure gold, that much I remember.
Emerson has a wonderful eye for detail and that all-too-rare quality in a poet of not letting the story get in the way of the description: This is a book you want to read. Likely to be on my ten best reads of the year list. Are other Kindle owners seeing the same thing? It's not a problem; in fact, I think I prefer it. See all 20 reviews.
