Andrew Morgan, Month of Big Hands. Natural History Press, 2013.

In Month of Big Hands, Andrew Morgan creates a stunningly beautiful world of violence, loss, and need. This book is a masterfully written prose poem which is as mysterious as it is engaging. The poem focuses on the ephemeral connection between three main characters, Elly, Herzog, and Robbie. As the story of the poem unfolds, their struggles and the savage world around them takes shape. Much akin to the tattered diary of a lost soldier, this book is a type of meditation. It is a gorgeously drawn portraiture of how we function within uncertainties and devastation.
