Because I Cannot Leave This Body

Truman State University Press
Free sample

In her new poetry collection, Carol V. Davis crosses cultural and geographic boundaries to explore her family’s history as Jews, as outsiders, as immigrants. Ranging from Los Angeles to Nebraska to Germany to Russia, she probes the boundaries between faith, folklore and superstition, trying to find her own way through terrain both menacing and inviting. The present, past and the human body move through the lens of her dark humor. Her restless mind is most at home at the uncomfortable edges where solace, when found, is ephemeral and fragmentary. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Goudy Old Style'}
