The Ties of the Railroad Tracks Home: the Poetry of Jared Carter

by Gilbert Wesley Purdy

Jared Carter’s first full-length book of poetry, *Work, for the Night is Coming*, was selected for the Walt Whitman Award, of the Academy of American Poets, by Galway Kinnell. Since then, Carter has been pleasing a wide range of readers with ever better books of poems, as evidenced by enthusiastic reviews by Dana Gioia, Ted Kooser and many others.

This monograph traces the growth of Carter’s craft and themes from that first remarkable book, and the Mississinewa County to which it introduced so many delighted readers, to the most recently released *Darkened Rooms of Summer: new and selected poems* (University of Nebraska Press, 2014). As the reader will see, it is a poetry that just keeps getting richer.

After the Loss of a Child: You Are Not Alone

by Monica Hofer

“â?¦ Powerfully tender, heartfelt and gripping.”

A book that gives words to this raw pain–the loss of a child–without holding back. A beautiful collection of poems from the heart that fully capture the anguish and yearnings of a bereaved mother after the loss of her young child.

On reading, bereaved parents will be reassured that they are not alone as they pass through this suffering, not alone in their intense yearnings to have their baby back and in their trepidation as they face each “first”: first birthday, first Thanksgiving, first Christmas.

Through nature and the author’s personal stories along her journey, the bereaved are encouraged to find meaning after loss.
