The Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart by Mary D. Esselman and Elizabeth Ash Vélez
The Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart

srobare, September 5, 2007

Fearful that I was going to read an iambic version of Chicken Soup for a Shite-Filled Soul, I was not too chuffed about reading more poetry. But it was a heck of a gift: Lucille Clifton and Michael Fried had me laughing for the first time in months. Whether you are suffering the pains of a freshly broken heart, or are merely probing the Scotch tape and band-aids holding yours together, these poems reminds you to breathe and laugh and breathe again. Read it! Mandatory gift for teenage girls (even if they initially hate you for it.)
