PDF Good Grief

Book description

Stevie Edwards' debut book of poetry, Good Grief, catalogues her elegantly-wrought misadventures as a freshly-graduated, Michigan transplant stumbling over foal legs through Chicago and kneeling down to confront the wreckage of her skinned knees. Whether stopping to disinter some small ruin of a secondhand-clothes childhood, charting the reaches of her own privilege as a white woman in Chicago, or trying to recollect the reasoning behind last night's bar receipts, Stevie's voice — a treble, equal parts angst and grace — rumbles deep down in the belly of her poems, and lingers.

"I had a physical reaction, the nodding and head-shaking and eye-closing and deep breaths that come when I read a wonderful poem. I made a lot of those motions as I read this collection, and I was grateful for its tackling of life's sadness and uncertainty."

"Though we encounter many of the expected narratives of adolescence, Edwards' command of the language and her refusal to back away from the toughest details of the confession (which often lead us far beyond where we're used to the story ending) makes these experiences as raw and nearly brutal as the first time."
-Union Station

Stevie Edwards tells the truth in a music made for poetry. Good Grief, a title I keep envying, is a thrilling debut of voice-driven poems from a poet wracked by her vision of the world as it is in all its lowly grit and open air. This is the strange comfort of loneliness at its brightest, finest lyric moment.
—Jericho Brown, Author of Please
