In Lieu Of Flowers

7.19

In this surreal series of dreamscapes, bears roam the subway and fathers become fish. But for all of the fantastic imagery in this stunning debut poetry collection there are equally memorable explorations of more familiar terrain: the landscapes of our lives and relationships.

"The poems and prose poems in Rachel Slotnick's nimble and dreamy In Lieu of Flowers possess the intimacy of letters - not ones written to you, but rather intercepted: secret and vulnerable, honest and true, reflecting unsparingly on love and aging, family and longing. Like the private to-do lists of someone you don't know, but would like very much to meet, these poems are urgent, intriguing, and strange." - Kathleen Rooney, author of Robinson Alone
