The Sinew of Forty Seven Years, Sarah Sandman


In The Sinew of Forty Seven Years Sarah Sandman reaches into her readers' bodies and grabs hold, never letting go. Sandman is a writer who doesn't flinch and in her steady gaze, readers will find darkness illuminated with such gifted poetry it is bearable. In this writing-always rich, evocative, generous, fierce-we learn to navigate our worst fears and catch hold of the glimmers that light the way to our own comfort. Sandman's voice is fresh, her language fresh, her topics important. Don't miss this collection. Anna March, author of The Diary of Suzanne Frank, and Feminist Killjoy Sarah Sandman's poetry gives voice to a silent scream written in the sky with a toenail. Its essence demands more than simply to endure pain. Her sentences have tall ambitions: unspoken, forgotten traumas and as much permission to her anger as a rib is permitted to rise in breath. The Sinew of 47 Years is the lost sister of Claudia Rankine's Citizen and a companion to xTx's Today I am a Book because it similarly empties out the places where violence has come to play and provides another fertile landscape where wit, wisdom and sensuousness stay. Antonia Crane, author of the memoir Spent
