Ground, Wind, This Body: Poems
This debut collection explores the vestiges of war and the effects those can have on a family. Carlson excavates the personal experience of violence and abuse that follows a traumatized soldier home and also reveals veins of redemption.
ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS
Tina Carlson is a psychiatric nurse practitioner at Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless.
“Carlson’s exquisite debut feels like a powerful woman has tossed a life preserver to a broken child flailing in the vast, tempestuous ocean of a brutal past. . . . The way Carlson faces abusive family history, war’s mental ravaging, and the search for transformation is courageous, authentic, and inspired.”--
