The Lives of the Saints and Everything
Author: Susan Firer
Publisher: Cleveland State University Poetry Center (1993)
The Lives of the Saints and Everything, 1993 winner of the CSU Poetry Center Prize, is Susan Firer's third book of poems. In this collection, by turns reverent, sardonic, and hilarious, she continues to experience and re-experience the rituals, feelings, and language of a Catholic childhood, probing the mysterious images of her own history—parents, children, music, the seasons, and the curious lives of the saints.
