Miriam's Book is about a young Jewish woman's traumatic experiences in WW2 and subsequently her child's exposure to her post-traumatic stress disorder. While much of this narrative poem or verse novella is based on historical events, the fictional parts and the dislocations of syntax and temporal sequence aim to convey the terrifying uncertainty and disorientation suffered by victims of war and flight.
