Nola Garrett’s 2nd full-length poetry collection, The Pastor’s Wife Considers Pinball, meditates on the variations of grace within chaos, creation, time, death, the domestic, games, and literature. In a voice that mixes sadness and humor, sometimes as the I of the author and other times as the pastor’s wife, these poems explore the hinge between the authority of the church and the musing laity.
