‘There are poems of precision and perception. The wonderful stories they contain are larger than the words it takes to tell them. Here are people to remember, a world to praise.” – Karen Joy Fowler (author of the NYT Bestseller The Jane Austen Book Club)
From the author of A Fish Trapped Inside the Wind, Parthian brings you a collection of poetry as you have never seen it before. First published in the USA to great acclaim, these short, experimental works blur the boundary between prose and poetry.
“Christien Gholson writes like no one else...These interrelated prose poems bristle with images that stun and burst into livid sudden pictions with each new line. An exquisite and exquisitely tight collection.” - Lorna Dee Cervantes
