Dress Her in Silk by Martha Andrews Donovan

"Martha Andrews Donovan's Dress Her in Silk is a sequence of connected poems that, taken together, create one of the most profoundly moving elegies I've read in years. The magic of her mother's childhood in India and the painful last days before her death are evoked here in tender, sometimes harrowing, always imaginative poems. One way or the other, we all come to the realm Donovan reports from; few writers have written from that place with this much craft and this much passion."

          - Theodore Deppe, author of Orpheus on the Red Line (Tupelo Press)
