“Each narrative swells to fill every small shred of real estate afforded it on the page…the author reminds us she wrote this love letter “just cause some things aren’t ever really as bad as they seem.” In Sarah Carson’s hands, this is not a feel-good platitude: it’s a pragmatic anthem of hope. – Penny Guisinger, Rain Taxi

Poems in which You Die

(BatCat Press)

…Sarah Carson’s Poems in Which You Die is a collection of 48 prose poems describing a breakup.
