What People are saying about this

Daniel Lowe
“Written with spare and vivid imagery, in shades of humor and from wells of loss, Shelnutt’s poems offer a moving study of love, family, and isolation. Most striking is the humility of perspective; despite the depths the poems probe. When We Were Cherished carries the light of language into memory where mystery still darkens the recesses.”
