The Grief Performance
Author: Emily Kendal Frey
Publisher: Cleveland State University Poetry Center (2011)
"Emily Kendal Frey performs grief and dread as a graceful dance, the kind the tree you cut down in your backyard might do on your heart. This work is light, deft, dangerous. There are perfect poems here, such as 'The End,' which enacts a simple, startling twist on the hoary injunction to 'Walk towards the light.' See, everything you know is wrong. You really have to read this book."
