Poetry. "The poems in THOUGH I HAVEN'T BEEN TO BAGHDAD throb with the anxiety of those left behind: mother, lover, friend. They are finely tuned to the fractures in daily life when a child is at war, when a child is wounded in war - how language itself stutters through fear and grief. As we mark ten years at war - wars most of us prefer to forget—Peggy Rozga's striking poems tell us, Look. Here. This is the true cost of war. Here."—Sarah Browning
