The Book of Jon
Sikelianos’s writing is poignant and unsentimental all at once. And with a single thread, she skillfully weaves together poems, prose, snapshots and photographs of her brilliant, loving, heroine addicted and failing father.
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous
On Earth is visceral and haunting. Every thought has a purpose and a resounding note. Little Dog’s relationship with his mother, with other men, with America and English is poetic but not overly embellished. Every movement of his words strike and flow with intention.
Home and Heaven
Imagine angels playing an invigorating game of soccer on a heavenly cloud. Their wings damp from exertion and halos knocked askew from all the movement. The Cherubim sit on the golden bleachers cheering while the Strongholds coach their players on the field. The Seraphim referee the game while God keeps score.
