Details

Overview

2015 Southwest Books of the Year

“Beautifully crafted, with grace, Words Like Love takes its place among the voices of Chrystos, Janet Marie Rogers, and Joy Harjo. Mahsi cho, Tanaya Winder. Your voice is astonishing.”—Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed: A Novel and Godless but Loyal to Heaven

In her debut collection, poet Tanaya Winder sings the joys, glories, and laments of love. Love is defined by familial, cultural, platonic, and romantic bonds in these emotional and thoughtfully rendered poems. Her voice traverses the darkness in a quest to learn more about the most complex of subjects.
