Editorial Reviews

Review

"'Inconsolable, loose grief, wild/ and keening' is Joy Manesiotis' formidable subject, anchored in family stories, rigorous observation, and vivid writing that captures its manifold features and nails it down." -- Michael Ryan

"The lyric impulse is alive and well in They Sing to Her Bones, a magnificent first book that marries lament with the music of surviving. In these elegant poems, Manesiotis reminds us that memory is not a static map of the past, but a place itself, like the author's beloved Greece, from which we launch the infinite possibility of our lives each day. Let us welcome these beguiling songs of what was and what still might be." -- Dorothy Barresi

Undeniably composed with the ear in mind, Manesiotis offers highly aestheticized poems that beg to be felt deeply, as she feels them, in the bone. -- Holly Spaulding

Format: Paperback
Manesiotis' poetry is a poignant recollection of life and death tying it into her Greek heritage. It is a wonderful collection for both beginning and experienced readers and writers.
