Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After losing her sister to heart failure, Karen Finneyfrock was unable to write poems for three years. Her voice came back, whispering at first, then screaming. Ceremony for the Choking Ghost contains the sound of that voice returning, bringing poems about grief and its effect on the body, the body politic, memory and, of course, poems about love. From the intensely personal, How My Family Grieved,” to the political, What Lot's Wife Would Have Said (If She Wasn't a Pillar of Salt),” Finneyfrock engages the reader with the chiseled images of a precise storyteller.
