Marie Alexander Poetry #2: Your Sun, Manny: A Prose Poem Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the second book in our Marie Alexander pros poetry series. In Your Sun, Manny, Marie Harris has created a prose poem memoir that reveals in touching detail her story of adopting and caring for Manny, a child who was abused and neglected until he was fourteen, when Harris and her husband made him a part of their family.

"Take this book to your heart and carry it away. The beauty and expressiveness of the author's words will renew your faith in the possibility of using language to capture experience and make it glow with meaning."—Laurel Speer, contributing editor, Small Press Review

"This is a complex story of hard-earned successes and brilliantly achieved failures, a story full of humor and wisdom and love."—Erica Funkhouser, author of The Actual World

Synopsis:

The poet has produced a powerful narrative of the life of a Puerto Rican boy who lived the first fourteen years of his life in institutions and foster homes but then was adopted by the author and her husband and brought to New Hampshire. How Manny and his new community deal with the possible, the impossible (like spelling), and the hoped for (a real job) is at the heart of the tale that is heartbreaking and heartwarming.

Synopsis:

Innovative poetry that combines lyricism, narrative, and biography
