Item description for Elegy for the Floater (Laurel Books) by Thomas Lux Teresa Carson...

" these poems, (there is) a family of 12 with the mother, father, and speaker as the prime characters....In a brilliant crown of sonnets, its most important character, the speaker's brother, who died a suicide, by drowning, fully emerges. The strictness of the form is never obtrusive--it just does its give a frame, a tension, something for the powerful emotion to work off of or against, thus increasing its powerful sentiment...By writing this book...Teresa Carson has rescued her family and her brother. That a book of poems can do this is a miracle." --Thomas Lux

"These poems...convey with beauty and power the emotions that pour from loss, love, trauma, reconciliation and healing. It is difficult in an academic article or a clinical process to capture the full measure of what it is we seek to heal. But in these powerful can connect to a fragment of the pain, and hope, of Teresa Carson. Her words can teach. Teresa Carson is wise. She shares her wisdom in this remarkable book."
--Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D. Senior Fellow, The Child Trauma Academy

Read This Now!  Jun 17, 2008
This is a stunning debut from the author. Sad, funny, poignant, in your face, depressing, alarming, all of it. You read the poems and prose in one sitting and you can't put it down until you are finished and at the Coda. Then, you come up for air and realize you are alive and that it feels so good to breathe.Teresa Carson has something to say here and it is moving and eloquent. If you have been affected by suicide or trauma in your life, this collection of poems and prose will spin your head but also help you heal. Highly recommended and worthy of a National Book Award. She is one of a group of new authors that is to be watched in the years ahead as a tour-de-force in the world of published authors.
