Marne Wilson writes a collection of poems about the life of a woman going through her loveless marriage and divorcing. Wilson’s writings continue to describe her character’s life after the divorce. Wilson’s collection of every man she loved correlates beautifully into a hard-to-put-down read.
“Marne Wilson writes with the subtlety, openness, and honesty which are hallmarks of the best poems. As Lovers Always Do is a masterful collection of narratives focusing on themes of relationships, loss, nostalgia, and hope. These pieces burn with heartbreak so the reader suffers with their narrators, but they also adeptly depict the daily realities of domestic life, and in that sense, we as readers feel comforted. Wilson casts a spell in her writing, and we can’t help but fall under it. This book is full of that powerful kind of magic.” —Ace Boggess, author of The Prisoners and I Have Lost the Art of Dreaming It So
