Poetry. Winner of the Dorothy Brunsman poetry prize. "These handsomely-crafted poems are remarkable--not only for their intelligence and use of language, but for their blend of sensitivity and strength. On his journey to recover the 'lost child,' Joshua McKinney's belief in innocence never wavers. At the same time, he gives dignity to boyhood's time and place, and those who inhabit it...THE NOVICE MOURNER is an achievement in that it truly demonstrates how grief can give way to a celebration of life"--Judith Minty.
