Thanks to Erika Dreifus for featuring me on her blog, Practicing Writing, yesterday. You might remember an author interview with her last year about her collection of short stories, Quiet American.
In yesterday’s post, Erika asked me about the collection’s unifying structure. My response begins, “These poems sit uneasily on the edge of comfort. The title Unrest is meant to identify the space that we enter where we – our thoughts and bodies – cannot entirely rest. That is to say, they address issues of loss and mourning, both private and public, in an effort to understand this experience.” Click to read more.
