After That

by Kathleen Aguero


Featuring meditations on Nancy Drew and confrontations with dementia, After That is a book of poignant surprises and connections. This collection moves beautifully through several territories, not only because Aguero's craft is exacting, but because of the relationships she establishes between poems, which make the reading all the more rich. I want a book to invite my engagement then demand it. This one does that.
