This took me a little while to get through but I really loved the poems in this collection. ( )

Trethewey's collection of poems draws on history, bringing the the past to the present. Inspired by old photographs and bits of her family history, she writes lovely narrative poems that capture a moment, illustrating the twirl of a women's skirt of a perfect nostalgic moment. Fantastic collection. ( )
