…there’s so much I don’t know about my life.
“With fluency and heart, the poems in Sarah Green’s Earth Science seem to say that beneath the surface of our common lives, our daily pleasures, nothing is stable, not family, nor the neighborhood, not the constellations, not even the sun a child was sure “stood still.” Love affairs, tragedy, even catastrophe, are simmering, most grippingly in the summer before the Boston Marathon bombing, when, in the poet’s lively Cambridge neighborhood The bombers were not bombers/yet, just brothers both younger than me, wrestling…/We were all very alive—/all of us and the brothers. (“Assembly”) I’m tremendously moved by the insight and appetite in this eloquent debut.”—Gail Mazur, author Forbidden City
