about this item

The poems in Family Resemblances unfold in a series of overlapping narratives in which characters struggle with injury and healing, violence and fear, courage and forgiveness. Throughout this beautiful volume, the multiple meanings of family--whether formed by biology or choice--are questioned through careful attention to the often conflicting notions of connection, inheritance, absence, and escape. The truths these poems find are much like life itself: complex, provisional, and rich.
