Susan Kolodny’s “After the Firestorm” reviewed at Prick of the Spindle


prick-of-the-spindle-logo

Prick of the Spindle Has a new review of a slightly older book.

“After the Firestorm” by Susan Kolodny was published in 2011. Which just goes to show that sometimes it takes a little while for quality to percolate through peoples’ consciousness.

In the end, however, Catherine Moore gets it:

Kolodny is both lyric poet and narrative observer. After the Firestorm gifts the reader each of these styles in its investigations of experienced losses and traumas.
