The Widow

Staff Pick

I'm not an avid poetry reader, but Suzanne Burns's The Widow hooked me as a lover of short stories. When read straight through, The Widow is a coherent narrative, the individual poems coalescing into a plot, with a beautifully-paced emotional arc, reminiscent of a short story. There's even a good twist, though I won't spoil the surprise. This is a deep and evocative book that draws on the best qualities of both poetry and the short-story form.

Review-A-Day

"I have a giant brain-crush on Suzanne Burns, which I first revealed in my gushing review of her short-story collection Misfits and Other Heroes (Dzanc Books). I'm happy to report that my one-sided love affair continues after having read The Widow, a rich and affecting collection of prose poetry published by Portland's Night Bomb Press." Sheila Ashdown, Powells.com (Read the entire Powells.com review)
