My Father's Suitcase by Marie Lovas

Landscape, folktale, and sometimes-harrowing autobiography play equal parts in Marie Lovas’s literally enchanting poems, whose lilt and turn of phrase remind me of haunting Irish folk music even as they quietly extend the possibilities of our current American poetic lexicon. The poems in My Father’s Suitcase are substantial and exquisitely-beautiful achievements. This is a book to read more than once, indeed a book to treasure. 

-- MICHAEL HETTICH, Systems of Finishing, The Animals Beyond Us, The Measured Breathing and Like Happiness
